About This Image
Cabo Trece is a striking Galician cape that forms part of the Costa da Morte (“death coast”) which stretches broadly from Fisterra to Malpica at its northernmost extent. Known for being one of Spain’s most treacherous coastlines, the name relates to the great number of ships lost here due to hidden rocks and the rough Atlantic ocean. These same natural forces carve the coastline and produce striking cliffs, gnarled outcrops and large boulders. Here I photographed one of the larger rock pools that has been formed by the deposition of these boulders over time. The stillness of these pools stood in contrast to the waves behind me, out of frame.
Producing Your Print
This print is produced using premium Hahnemuhle Photorag Pearl 320gsm – a 100% cotton paper with a slightly textured pearl finish. I find this slight lustre works brilliantly for landscape photography, adding contrast and enhancing the sense of depth in the final print. I fine-tuned the final image specifically for this paper before printing, using a colour-managed process. All prints use Epson Ultrachome Pro pigment inks that result in vivid, true-to-life colors and worry-free fade resistance and longevity.
