Swanage Bay Mist Photograph – Colour Photo Panorama 24″x12″
A cool coloured Swanage Bay Mist Photograph – landscape taken at Swanage sea front early morning during June 2018.
The photograph has been printed on a high quality UV poster paper and mounted within an acid free mount board arrangement, smokey grey in colour. The photograph (actual) sits within the mount board aperture measuring approx 21 3/4″ by 10 3/4″. This is a very cooling image of the bay taken on a very misty and calm morning.
The pine frame has been restored and shows signs of its previous life. The wood frame was taken back to its bare wood (some minor ‘flecks’ of yellow remain with the deeper parts of the wood). A teak dye was applied 4 times, each after a light rub down. Once the frame was coloured correctly, 3 coats of natural bees wax and a final polish.
The frame (24″x12″) has been re assembled with the my photograph, singed on the mount board and new seal points and tape to complete the frame.
NOTE: Frame contains glass.
This was my first photography trip to beautiful Dorset. My photographic aim was Corfe Castle in the early morning mist however; the mist was thicker and gloomier than I had anticipated. So, off I went to Swanage for breakfast, 5 miles down the road. It was here that I was met with the most peaceful and serene view, with not another soul in sight (5:30am). I had unhindered access to some great local beauty and fantastic walks too.
I had time to relax and consider all the technical aspects of landscape photography, including using filters and all the time necessary to consider compositional and creative thoughts.
As the morning awoke, my trip turned into a fun and social way to explore a very beautiful corner of England while I met with some great characters about to start their day fishing.
I aim to return soon.
I hope you enjoy this image as much as I do, comments always welcome.
