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."  


Each photograph in Jim's premier collection was selected for inclusion in the National Geographic Fine Art Galleries, which are no long in business. Now we are now able to offer these images directly to you, printed personally by Jim. These limited edition prints conform to the NGFA edition numbering. Prints are signed and numbered only when they conform to his Jim's exacting standards of the best fine art printing available today.   

Images are printed 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. They are embossed with Jim's studio blind stamp to confirm that each print was created by him.

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 than these print dimensions.
