Temple in the Clouds - Special Print Offer

In conjunction with the publication of the book "Temple in the Clouds" by John Burgess I am offering a unique set of black and white prints of this unique and stunning temple in the north of Cambodia. Prasat Preah Vihear has the most spectacular setting of all the temples built during the six-centuries-long Khmer Empire with a view for many miles over the plains of North Cambodia. As a key edifice of the empire's spiritual life, it was supported and modified by successive kings and so bears elements of several architectural styles. Preah Vihear is unusual among Khmer temples in being constructed along a long north-south axis, rather than having the conventional rectangular plan with orientation toward the east. The temple gives its name to Cambodia's Preah Vihear province, in which it is now located, as well as the Khao Phra Wihan National Park which borders it in Thailand's Sisaket province and through which the temple is most easily accessible.

This is a unique set of high quality, black & white prints of Preah Vihear, "Temple in the Clouds", Cambodia printed in either MetalPrint high gloss or MetalPrint satin finish and in a variety of sizes. This set of high quality prints have been priced as a special package as a set of 4 and would make an exceptional framed series for the collector.

To purchase click on the BUY PHOTOS button then choose BUY PHOTO PACKAGE to take advantage of this special package pricing for 4 high quality prints. Or individual images can be purchased by choosing BUY PHOTOS and then choosing THIS PHOTO or PHOTOS FROM THIS GALLERY

To create MetalPrints we infuse dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, creating truly archival works of art. These MetalPrints showcase a revolutionary new medium that is highly durable, waterproof, weatherproof, and ultra scratch-resistant. The unique printing method gives your photos a vibrant luminescence with incredible detail and resolution.

Choose from High Gloss and Satin finishes.

Each print has rounded corners for your safety and the surface can be easily cleaned with any commercial glass cleaner.

MetalPrints come ready-to-hang with two 3/4" thick lightweight foam blocks and aluminum plate with pre-drilled holes. MetalPrints sized 30x40" and up are backed with an inset frame for added stability. When hung, these stunning prints will float off the wall.

Peter & Paul Cathedral, Peterhof, St. Petersburg, Russia

This wonderful orthodox Russian church really stands out with its minarets and brightly coloured bricks and is a superb example of Russian Revival architecture.

In 1892 it was decided to create the cathedral and the project was aimed to provide local residents, who weren’t allowed into palace churches, a bigger place to gather for the religious service. The construction took many years and it was finally completed under Nicholas II in 1905. In 1935 the church was shut down. During World War II it was seriously damaged as was the whole Peterhof. It was used by German military forces as artillery headquarter, to spy on Soviet ships and then it became a warehouse. Eventually after long restoration works, the first church service was celebrated on January, 19, 1990.

The cathedral was designed in a Kievan Russian style as most of the churches of that time. The façade is decorated with polychrome bricks, red and green roofs and it resemble in many features Saint Basil Cathedral in Moscow. It has four entrances, an anteroom for outdoor clothes and a cover galley that goes round the church. The main room where they celebrate the church service is high and bright and boasted a wonderful acoustic. On the seconds floor there is usually the church choir whose voices gently accompany the service. The location of the cathedral is simply beautiful and surrounded by many other lakes and parks. Its massive structure, over 60 meters high, dominates the whole area. It is possible to go up the tower and enjoy the amazing view on Peterhof and Saint Petersburg.

Bye Bye B. B.

The great B. B. King has sadly passed away at the ripe old age of 89 after a lifetime of dedication to blues music. He has worked non-stop throughout his life and in terms of live performances every year has probably out done everyone else. Even in later years in his 80's he was doing 100 nights a year ...... just incredible. His contribution to blues music and his musical legacy will live on for ever.

I was lucky enough to see B.B. twice .... once in the early 80's while a student in Edinburgh where I was amazed at the way he could totally capture and motivate the entire crowd. Much later when living in Singapore I saw him in concert where he had slowed up and needed to sit for some of his performance but nevertheless was an incredible performance.

Play some B. B. King music today and celebrate the incredible life of the King of the Blues.

Hogwart's Hall

The Great Hall in Christ Church College, Oxford University was the inspiration for the filming of the Harry Potter movie and the hall was replicated in the studios to create Hogwart's Hall. Other parts of this college were used in shooting various parts of the movies.

Donkey's Ears Peak - A Collectors Item

Sometimes as a photographer you manage to capture a special image which will not be able to be taken ever again ..... it may be a unique situation or event, perhaps a once in a lifetime political event or sporting event or in my case .... it was a mountain peak! 

I climbed Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia in October 2012 and took many photographs during that trip. In particular I captured a number of images of the unique Donkey's Ears peak as I descended from the peak ..... not realising at the time that this photograph would become something of a collectors item.

The Donkey's Ears peak on Mount Kinabalu were significantly damaged due to the earthquake that occurred on the mountain on 5th June 2015  .... and as reported by The Star http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2015/06/05/Sabah-tremors-Donkey-Ear-peak/

Clovelly

An antique B&W processed image of Clovelly in Devon which I feel is fitting for this old village. This small cliffside fishing village is a major tourist attraction notable for its extremely steep pedestrianized cobbled main street, donkeys and views over the Bristol Channel.
Clovelly used to be a fishing village and in 1901 had a population of 621. It is a cluster of largely wattle and daub cottages on the sides of a rocky cleft; its steep main street descends 400 feet (120 m) to the pier, too steeply to allow wheeled traffic. Sledges are used for the movement of goods. The quaint street is lined with houses, a small number of shops, a cafe and a public house. All Saints' Church, restored in 1866, is late Norman, containing several monuments to the Cary family, Lords of the Manor for 600 years.

Unusually, the village is still privately owned and has been associated with only three families since the middle of the 13th century, nearly 800 years. The scenery has been captured by artists for its richness of colour, especially in the separately accessed and separated Clovelly Court and along The Hobby, a road cut through the woods and overlooking the sea. The South West Coast Path National Trail runs from the top of the village and the section from Clovelly to Hartland Quay is particularly spectacular.

The village has one public house and one hotel.

Colour Explosion

A vivid explosion of colours at the Peterhof Palace outside St. Petersburg, Russia with a magnificent array of water fountains.
The Peterhof Palace is a series of palaces and gardens located in Saint Petersburg, Russia, laid out on the orders of Peter the Great. These Palaces and gardens are sometimes referred as the "Russian Versailles". The palace-ensemble along with the city center is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood, St. Petersburg

The incredible ceiling murals in the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood is one of the main sights of St. Petersburg, Russia. Other names include the Church on Spilt Blood and the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ.

This Church was built on the site where Emperor Alexander II was severely wounded and died in March 1881.The church was built from 1883 till 1907. The construction was funded by the imperial family. The name of the church should not be confused with the Church on Blood in Honour of All Saints Resplendent in the Russian Land, located in the city of Yekaterinburg.

Passionate Photographer Lost in Asia --|-- www.highlanderimages.com
Introduction
Stuart Taylor of HighlanderImages Photography provides professional freelance photography services focused primarily on Asia and with a documentary and photojournalistic style. Stuart is available for a variety individual assignments or projects such as documentary, photojournalism, commercial, architectural, real estate, industrial, interior design, corporate, or travel photography and can offer some advanced techniques such as HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Panoramic Photography in conjunction with comprehensive post-processing capabilities. 

                      | --------------------------- |

Photojournalism & Documentary Photography
Preparing images for a documentary or for journalistic requirements requires detailed research about the subject and some dedicated time onsite to capture required images to fulfill the storyline. As they often say "A picture is worth a thousand words" and certainly in the preparation of any story the images are usually the main driving force and can create the most impact. For many photojournalism projects there is usually a requirement for a fast turnaround of the images, the need for objective and accurate representation of the situation and the provision of some narrative describing the story.

HDR Photography
For interior and corporate photography there used to be a need for a fairly complex lighting set up required to capture the final image. By using HDR techniques there is now no need for this large requirement on lighting equipment. HDR photography is essentially the capture of multiple images at different exposures to capture all the light values or dynamic range in the scene then combining these into one final image. This essentially makes a final image that is close to what our eyes actually see with no blown out highlights and no loss of detail in the shadows. This technique is particularly effective for photographing interiors of houses and offices or in some industrial situations and can be done a lot faster and easier than traditional setups with a large array of lighting.

Panoramic Photography
Sometimes you just can't capture all of the scene you are trying to photograph even by using a wide angle lens so panoramic photography is a technique where you can take multiple photographs covering the whole scene, both horizontally and vertically, then combining these into one final large, composite image. This requires some complex software techniques to provide seamless stitching of the images and preserving the geometry and exposure values across the whole scene. The results however can be very impressive, whether capturing a large landscape, interior of an office or building or an expansive industrial complex.

Final product Delivery
High resolution final images can be provided on CD or DVD with smaller low to medium resolution versions made available initially via e-mail. High quality prints can be ordered via my website but can be arranged to be printed locally if required. Multimedia slideshows, videos, DVDs or printed books of collated images can also be provided as to your specifications and design.
