Black and white award winning photograph ‘Heaven On Earth’ taken on the Isle Of Skye, Scotland. Church ruins.
‘Heaven On Earth’ Isle of Skye – Scotland Long Exposure Black & White
A very blustery day on the Isle of Skye and we came across the ruins of this old Church. No windows remaining and the inside walls covered in multicoloured graffiti. The cloud movement caught my eye and just begged to be captured so I found my composition, knelt down in half a foot of mud surrounded by the 2 foot long straw grasses. I anchored my tripod legs by pushing them deep down into the mud and stood shielding my camera from the high winds coming from behind me to get a 61 second exposure without any camera shake. The result is just what I imagined and I love the way the clouds seem to burst out of the church – Heaven On Earth.

Print options: I offer two options for my art work to be displayed on walls. Fine Art Giclée Print or a Handmade UV Protected Canvas.
- Fine Art Giclée Print | I use an experienced specialist printer in Yorkshire to print and inspect every print before it leaves his family print workshop. The paper used is Hahnemühle 308gsm Photo Rag, a fine art smooth 100% cotton white paper. Hahnemühle Photo Rag® is one of the world’s most popular papers and the valued all-rounder for high-quality FineArt inkjet printing. The white cotton artist’s paper, with its characteristic, wonderfully soft feel, boasts a lightly defined felt structure, lending each artwork a three-dimensional appearance and impressive pictorial depth.
- Handmade Canvas | I use the same experienced printer for my canvasses. Hand built in his family workshop using 38mm (gallery standard) FSC approved UK pine frames. Using Canon’s award winning imagePROGRAF printers and LUCIA EX 8-colour ink, ensuring high quality colours and resolution prints on 340gsm 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is also UV resistant laminate for ease of gentle cleaning.
- Please note that all prints will have a blank ‘white bleed edge’ around the photo to help with mounting and framing. Canvasses have wrap around edges with no white borders. All canvasses also come with a hanging kit.
- 3 to 5 working days.
