Recently I was watching a 2016 Charlie Cramer talk hosted by Tim Parkin and the gang from On Landscape on YouTube. If you are a landscape photographer and don’t yet know of On Landscape Magazine go take a look; I can highly recommend it.

Charlie is scheduled to talk at the Photo Fest conference in Bath – organised by the folks at Fotospeed – in September this year. Whether that occurs as planned is unclear thanks to COVID-19. But I certainly hope it does as I would like to hear what Charlie has to say about printing.

The video reminded me of I photograph I made back in 2011 whilst on a Christmas/New year stay in Glen Affric and which has been languishing in my queue of photographs to print for some time. Freshly motivated I dug-out the raw file captured with an EOS 5D Mark 2 and redeveloped it using my modern digital darkroom tools (Capture One, Affinity Photo) and then printed it using ImagePrint.

I recall it was late one afternoon on a grey, damp day not long before sunset that I made this photograph. I had been photographing Caledonian Pine trees but had returned back to the truck. Not far from the truck was this group of Silver Birch trees. The trees and surrounding vegetation were wet with the light rain known as Scotch Mist and there was a georgeous purple light in the trees. Not a planned photograph. Some times it’s just about being out and about in the landscape at the right sort of time. 🙂

I’m really happy with how the print turned out. So, happy that it is now in the Unlimited Edition Prints section of my website were it is available as an A2 or A3 print.
