Durlston Head

What's the story? - We visited Durlston Country Park, Swanage on a cold March day just after the birth of our first grandchild. Having taken lots of shots Richard decided the view of the Great Globe with the top of the Castle in the background made the best composition. Constructed in Greenwich in 1887 and made from Portland stone, it's surface shows the continents, oceans and certain more specific areas of the world. Around the Globe is a set of stone plaques carved with quotations from English and Roman poets and the Bible, as well as facts about the natural world. We remember the days when you could walk right up to the globe which is now protected by a fence.

Giclée Printing - this involves squirting or spraying microscopic dots of pigment based-inks onto high quality art paper (not as messy as it sounds!). The print is colour corrected to attain the closest possible match to the original artwork and will keep its vibrant colours for many years to come.

Paper - we use a natural soft textured bright white matt 315gsm paper. The paper's bright white base and gentle texture delivers a quality print with a wide colour gamut, it's 100% acid free and accredited by the Fine Art Trade Guild as being of archival quality.
