Heather Covered Highlands, Scotland


Heather Covered Highlands
Cairngorms, Scotland

Unframed archival pigment print

"Clouds and sunlight were sweeping up the glen at Mar Lodge Estate in the Cairngorms of Scotland on this dramatic morning. I was here on a quest to photograph heather, the signature plant of the Scottish moors. For this National Geographic story I knew a bold picture of heather in bloom was an absolute necessity. My search took over a week, throughout the Highlands and even out to Lewis and Harris, but finally we returned to Mar Lodge Estate near Braemar where, with great good fortune, the next morning's sunrise was spectacular. The purple carpeting the hills was great but the light on this morning added the drama needed to convey the character of the Cairngorm Mountains." 

"We published it in our National Geographic story and it was a popular choice at the National Geographic Fine Art Galleries. A limited number of prints remain available from that limited edition."  

Selected for inclusion in the National Geographic Fine Art Galleries, we are now able to offer this prints directly to you, printed personally by Jim using his preferred choice of printers, inks and premium fine art papers. These limited edition prints conform to the NGFA editioning. Prints are signed and numbered by Jim only when they conform to his exacting standards of the best fine art printing available today.


The print is made on Epson's Legacy Baryta II paper, a beautiful OBA free heavy fine art paper which makes a sumptuous visual presentation. Printed with Epson's Ultrachrome inks for the greatest archival print longevity and color gamut. 

Printed personally by Jim, individually signed and numbered, embossed with Jim's studio blind stamp to confirm that each print was created by him. 

Our print sizes denote the actual image size. Printed with a wide margin of white paper to facilitate handling, so the total paper size will be larger.
