About This Image
In this image, taken in the very early morning hours, I wanted to depict the contrast between the soft, pastel tones of first light on the plains (still shielded by the mountains to the East) and the hard, direct, orange light as the sun first started to shine directly on the hills ahead. The rocky terrain and varied scrubland below provide a rich texture and a graduation of colours as they reflect the early light in a variety of different ways.
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.
