True Love Wall Print

Quick guide to selecting your wall print:

1. Choose the type - canvas, photo paper or fine art paper. Need more details? See the wall prints guide.

2. Select the size - the options in the drop-down menu refer to the print before a frame is added (including any border). All images are produced in their original uncropped format, so the actual image size may vary depending on your selection.

Canvas prints: the full image covers the entire front face. There is no border and the edges are white. The size selected from the drop-down size menu will be the actual image size.

Photo paper or fine art paper (framed or unframed) - actual image size within the border will be:

Paper size: width x height  Actual image size: width x height
40cm x 30cm 28cm x 20.2cm
50cm x 40cm 40cm x 28.9cm
70cm x 50cm 47cm x 34cm
100cm x 70cm 69.1cm x 50cm

3. Pick a frame (or choose not to). Frames are 2cm wide and stand 2.3cm from the wall.

4. Add to basket and you're done!

Description / True Love Wall Print

Northern gannets show impressive devotion to each other, pairing for life and returning to the same nest site each year to breed. At the seabird colony on Bempton Cliffs on the Yorkshire coast, Steve has watched gannet behaviour for a number of years.

‘Many times I have seen a male offer the female a gift such as a feather or blade of grass,’ he says. ‘But on this occasion I was amazed to see the male give his partner a necklace of red campion.’

Gannets are beautiful birds but their bright white plumage can be challenging to photograph in the contrasting coastal light conditions. Here the challenge was also to create a composition that would reflect the devotion between the pair. The gift was the soft evening light that enhanced the tenderness of the moment.
