Winter dawn Cockwood Harbour. 16 x 24 Canvas wrap
Winter dawn Cockwood Harbour. 16 x 24 inch canvas wrap.
I took this photograph at dawn, in mid-December, 2009. It was an icy morning and I remember the numbness in my fingers as I tried operate the camera controls. Cockwood is a small hamlet on the Exe Estuary, South Devon. A little embayment along the estuary forms the harbour here which, along with much of the estuary, dries out to mudflats at low water. The harbour is protected the railway line, which forms the outer boundary wall. To exit the harbour vessels must pass under the railway line, under a bridge through which the outgoing stream flows. This picture shows the stream on the far side of the bridge, where the stream flows out to join the main river. As the sun crept above the horizon the rays glistened and bounced off the wet mud and ripples on the emptying stream. On winter mornings estuaries always seem especially cold places, but the solitude and beauty more than compensate.
Sharp, detailed canvas prints that last 100 years without fading. Printed onto bright 400gsm cotton, hand-stretched on heavy-duty 4cm-deep stretchers, your photos & art look compelling. Ready to hang.
Printed, using the giclée method, and advanced large-format printers print at 1440 dpi using a 10-colour pigment ink system, for smooth graduations, less bronzing, and an impressive colour range. The canvas used is tight-weave bright white 400gsm cotton canvas with a uniform, non-cracking surface. Prints are hand-stretched onto heavy duty 38mm-deep knotless solid kiln-dried fir stretcher bars from sustainable sources in Europe. Prints come with built-in corner wedges that make it easy to tighten the canvas. They arrive ready to hang, backed with brown framing tape and a flat hanging system that keeps your canvas lying perfectly against the wall.
