Birds of Boreray, St. Kilda, Scotland


Birds of Boreray
St. Kilda, Scotland

Unframed archival pigment print

Gannets flying out from Boreray in St. Kilda were a stunning sight, the effect heightened because the uninhabited island was wreathed in clouds and I had feared I would get no images out of my four hour boat trip to the remote archipelago in the North Atlantic. But as we circled the island the clouds lifted a bit, light from setting sun streamed in and thousands of nesting Gannets swept down from the high cliffs. It was a stunning moment, one of the most thrilling of my whole lifetime in photography. This was a central image in our Hebrides story for National Geographic magazine. 


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.
