Have you ever dreamed of an island far away from the world? A place of gentle colours and soft skies? Orkney is that place. This image is not of a well known beauty spot, it is not a famous part of the island, but, it captures the essence of the place, the sense of being close to the ground, close to the water, close to the elements. The image is a long exposure made on 'the Mainland', the largest island in the archipelago of small islands that make up Orkney and lie off the north east coast of Scotland. The name is the Viking for Seal Islands and it is a place of fishermen and farmers. This is a place of softly rolling hills that dip in and out of small pools of silvery blue water. In Autumn, the bracken is vividly orange and the light from soft puffy clouds lights up fields of intensely green grass. This is one of a series of images that are my impression of the colours of Orkney. The blue on this island is more lilac than teal and the grasses more muted ochre than lemon yellow. A fabulous combination that excites the imagination. This is the square version, there is also a landscape version, see other listing. About My Work I believe in giving my clients beautiful artwork on luxury papers that hold their colours for a lifetime! For these special prints of my work I use dreamy, light textured Canson Canvas and the highest quality inks. I print the canvases here in my studio to control of the colour representation at all stages to ensure you get a truly handmade image. About My Materials People often say that my images look like paintings because of the richness of the colours, the depth of the black and the texture of the materials I use. Canson are one of the oldest paper manufacturers in the world, they have been making paper for over 450 years in France. Founded in 1557 and printers to Louis XVI, their paper was used by Voltaire and Napoleon and the Montgolfier brothers used Canson paper to make the first hot air balloon. Canson paper was used by Picasso, Ingres, Chagal, Miro and many other artists. They have been making paper and canvas for photography since this art began over 150 years ago. Canson are Eco Friendly - they purchase paper pulp for their materials only from forests managed in a sustainable way which also makes them pretty special. Other Sizes This print is available in other sizes or paper. I am happy to take custom orders, just drop me a line.

I live on top of a cliff on the Isle of Skye in the far north of Scotland; a place of inspiration, myth and legend. In all kinds of weather, I am to be found on a clifftop or by the beach with my camera. When I discovered long exposure photography back in 2011 and how it captures the subtle magic of early dawn light I was hooked. Here was a way for me to capture the beauty of light, a myriad of colours and make them my own. I am self taught in Photography using my researching skills to delve into the technical side of things using magazines and books for guidance. I love experimenting and started with my impressionist style images back in 2012. The rest of the Photography fraternity (or so it seemed to me at the time) was focussing on just how sharp you could make a photograph and measured success in terms of technical ability. I rarely saw blurry images or creative photography published in magazines and certainly not in photography exhibitions or competitions and so I carried on experimenting in my own little world with no thought to exhibiting. Having moved home three times to find the place I wanted to be, I now have a lovely studio on top of a clifftop with a view of hills and sea, sheep and green fields. Winters are harsh and very windy but my access to the Scottish Islands where I tend to spend a lot of time is easy from here. I am lucky enough to have a patient husband, four dogs and a stray cat and my life revolves around making and playing with painting and photographing the landscape.
