There aren’t many summits in Snowdonia that work well for sunset but Elidir Fawr is one that does – most of the others are blocked by bigger mountains to their West. This is a shot that I have wanted to get for several years but had to wait for the right combination of conditions to come along. I wanted the snow and that in itself is rare enough but I also wanted a temperature inversion to create the sea of clouds and clear skies above to capture the setting sun. I had a couple of failed attempts and then finally in December of 2020 it all came together and I was able to get the shot.

As the name suggests, this paper has all the attributes to meet the museum standard of inkjet printing to create fine art prints in colour with a high degree of detail and pronounced texture.
