Fine Art Photographer Of The Year BIPP Yorkshire 2021
Slaters Bridge. A hidden gem. Forever ingrained in my mind.
I’m in fully obsessive mode, after my epic hike, in atrocious weather. The Famous Alfred Wainwright said this was “the most picturesque footbridge in Lakeland".
In the Lake District, a landscape shaped by 2 million years of ice ages, you can experience 4 Seasons in one day.
Slaters Bridge, a centuries old, drystone arched bridge, designed for a packhorse route, carrying slates from mines, is my treasure trove.
Disheartened, cold, wet, with temperatures plummeting and a bridge treacherous to navigate, I balance myself, camera gear, and cross it. Climbing down to the water’s edge, water enters my boots. I wade through river water, wary of falling and getting swept away and stand in icy water. Waiting. Praying.
Suddenly, the rain stops and there is a spectacular ray of sunshine on the hillside.
Slaters Bridge is like a bridge from a fairytale, something out of Middle-earth or the land that time forgot.

Premium Glossy Photo Paper will last a long time.
This option is available in 8x10 inches, 11x14 inches or 16x20 inches.
They are designed to be placed in a glass frame, which can be purchased separately (starting at a few dollars at your local Target or online).
2) Ready to Hang Canvas are ready to hang right out of the box with zero assembly required. Ultimate convenience.
Gorgeous finished look. It comes out of the shipping box finished and ready to hang with a simple nail in the wall.
Canvas Prints are a well-known, high-end way of displaying photographs.
1.5 inch thick wooden stretcher-bars that give it shape, in the same way an oil painting is traditionally assembled. There are no staples or ugly lines visible on the sides (very important). Estimated delivery time for printing, assembling, packing and shipping is around 10 days.
3) Ready to Hang Canvas (split into 3 panels)
This is for larger pieces, and the photograph is split into 3 even panels, 3 separate canvas panels which put together make a single large image. This gives a modern look, and allows spectacularly large sizes on your wall!
