Wee Island in the Calm, Scotland


Wee Island in the Calm
Loch Maree, Scotland

Unframed archival pigment print

Loch Maree in Scotland finally offered up this supremely calm view on the fourth morning that I returned, and what a reward it was. Photographing the Scottish Moors for National Geographic I desperately wanted an image that would speak to the surpassing beauty of these remote lands, as well as featuring the iconic Scots pine trees that are so representative of this ancient landscape. Wee Island in the Calm has captured the imagination of many viewers. We published it as a coveted gatefold in our National Geographic story and it was, perhaps, the best selling image ever in the National Geographic Fine Art Galleries. A limited number of prints remain available from that limited edition.  

Loch Maree is dotted with over sixty island, some small like this, some much larger with their own lochans. All are a prime place to see Scots pine, thanks to the absence of deer. The name comes from Saint Máel Ruba who had a hermitage here in the 8th century. And the Vikings had camps on some of the islands a thousand years ago. 


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.
