Torres del Paine signed giclee print
Torres del Paine, signed giclee print.
I took this photograph during an expedition trip to South America in 2018, this remain one of my favourite images from that journey. The Cuernos del Paine, or Blue Horns (Cuernos = blue in Spanish; Paine (pronounced Pie-nay) = blue in the language of the indigenous Tehuelche people of Patagonia). The Cuernos del Paine, three massive granite spires, are possibly the most striking peaks of the Cordillera Paine mountain range. Lying within the Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia; along with the nearby Bernardo O’Higgins National Parks, they contain 90% of the Southern Patagonian Icefield and are a proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Compared to most high street printers, who print at 360 dpi with 2 passes (no. of times a print head passes over an area), these giclee prints are created at 1440 dpi, with 8 passes. The archival pigment prints are profiled for accurate colour reproduction. Using state-of-the-art print software, prints are sharp, detailed, and vibrant. The colour gamut is maximised for every paper offered, and captures open shadow detail, true blues and natural skin tones for every image. 3-level black ink technology means better grey balance, impressive mid-tones, and no colour casts, for true black and white reproduction.
This is my handwritten signature, then digitally added to this print.
