Bedding Down, Stones of Stenness, Orkney, Scotland


Bedding Down, Stones of Stenness  
Orkney, Scotland  

Unframed archival pigment print

The Standing Stones of Stenness might just be the oldest stone circle in the Scotland – and the UK, 700 years older than Stonehenge. This image was taken for my first Scotland assignment for National Geographic and subsequently appeared as a centerpiece image of our Orkney story. The ewe bedding down with her lambs next to one of the stones suggested to me the deep history and ongoing life of these islands in the North Sea. It will always reflect a special moment in my photographic life. 


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.
