Northumberland prints

Fine Art Prints: A3+ size (329 x 483mm)

A range of Northumberland images is now available from this website, printed to the highest standard on fine art photo paper with archival inks. The subjects include Northumberland National Park, Cheviot and Simonside Hills, Coquet valley, red squirrel, Breamish valley, Tarset, Kielder, College valley, Hareshaw Linn, North Tyne valley and other beautiful locations across Northumberland. The views of Sycamore Gap on Hadrian’s Wall at night, in the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park are especially popular.
The images are printed on Epson Ultrasmooth Fine Art paper, with Epson Ultrachrome K3 archival ink. This technology has become the standard for the most discerning professional photographers who seek the highest image quality combined with the best archival print permanence. The dimensions refer to the paper size which is A3+ (or Super A3), 329 x 483 mm, (13 x 19 inches). The photographs are printed a little smaller than the paper size so that there is a white border around the image, and are signed in pencil on the paper border. Other sizes are available on request, as are prints on canvas – please email for prices. Prints are despatched in a rigid cardboard tube for full protection in transit.


November is a wonderful month, a turning point between the colourful days of autumn and the increasing darkness of winter. This year the autumn seems to have been very long and gradual, with the colours lingering much later than normal, and not too much wind. I always enjoy selecting images for the Seasons of Northumberland calendar every year, and November is an especially rich month for photography, with the a climax of autumn colour occurring in the first week of November and the last week of October in this part of the world. The North Tyne valley in Northumberland National Park has many scattered woodlands with a range of native species such as oak, birch and larch, as well as plantations of conifers. For details of woodlands, soft overcast light is ideal, as this kind of underrated photographic light is perfect for good colour saturation and the recording of detail. This image was made of medium format 6 x 7 cm transparency film in the pre-digital era,  not all that long ago. It shows a beautiful maple tree at Sidwood near Greenhaugh in the Tarset valley, with the glorious colour of maple leaves contrasting with the subdued background of greys and greens. This image appears in the 2016 calendar.

Northumberland National Park

The autumn season this year has been magnificent. A long, sunny spell of weather, followed by some colder days, and not much wind, has kept the leaves on the trees for longer than normal, and the colours seem to have peaked a few days later than average. Northumberland National Park often looks at its best late in the year when the low angled sun catches the gold, yellow and warm brown colours of the hills, and the wooded valleys are filled with autumn colour. This image shows the dazzling colours of a bright November day in the Tarset valley near Greenhaugh and Bellingham.
