Peaceful Myth Photograph – Description
A signed, dated and framed print from my collection. This ‘Peaceful Myth Photograph’ reflects my personal love of myth & legend. This print is reproduced on thick glossy photographic paper and mounted within a ‘restored frame’. The photograph is rich in greens and ambers reflecting an ethereal almost mythical dream image from long ago, Peaceful Myth.
The frame measures 17” x 14” (430mm x 355mm) which has been lovingly restored from an old abandoned frame. The original varnish was removed revealing the original pine wood before a new light antique pine dye was applied. The framed was then polished and buffed however, it still shows some of the original minor marks of a past life. All the old clips have been removed and replaced with new before the final tape has been applied. The mount board is a light cream in colour.
The photograph was taken near the town of Brecon in Wales, during a brief visit and peaceful walk during early 2017. The Title (Peaceful Myth) has been hand written onto the surrounding mount board, signed and dated. The mount board aperture for the photograph measures 8.5” x 6.5” (220mm x 170mm).
No mounting kit has been applied, giving you more display choice.
Myth & Lengend, up there with the three largest loves of my life (family & photography being the first two). A visit to the Brecon Beacons on a walking weekend with my slight crazy daughter who just loves anything ‘outdoorsy’ where she gets to show Dad her athletic abilities.
That aside, my camera travels everywhere with me and this photograph was ‘luck’. A discovery of a little known area just outside Brecon led to this most wondrous little walk that left the pair of us speechless. Hence, the title ‘Peaceful Myth’. For this photograph, I was low to the cold water rushing past, balancing my camera on a small gorilla pod and setting a slightly longer exposure to ensure the motion of the water was captured. This photograph for sale was one of many attempts before I settled on the final image. Post processing allowed the richness of colours to be enhanced thus proving that rich warm feeling.
I hope you enjoy this image as much as I do, comments always welcome.
