Whitby Whalebones In Spring

A glorious sunrise at Whitby on the Yorkshire coast. The Whitby Whalebones stand at Kyber Pass on Whitby’s West Cliff, they were erected in 1963. The Blue Whalebones were given by Graham Leach and Thor Dhal. They stand here to honour the men of Whitby who risked there life’s in the icy water of the Artic, hunting the largest creature in the world. In the 17th and 18th century Whitby was a massive Whaling port, and between 1753 and 1833 the 55 Whitby based ships returned with 2500 seals and 2761 whales. The inventor of the crows nest William Scoresby brought the record tonnage back to Whitby from all the Artic voyages. Whitby’s harbour side was filled with large boiler houses where the whale blubber was turned into oil, making everything from soap to lubricants. Much of the oil was used in the Victorian street lamps with replicas still remanning on the 199 steps. Every part of the whale was used from cartilage for glue and skin for leather. The whaling industry came to demise in Whitby as in the rest of the UK with the discovery of new petrol oils.

All canvas prints bought from us are made using the Epson 9900. Its 11 ink printer system maximises the ground-breaking Epson Ultra Chrome HDR Inks with their massive colour gamut and DMax.

Colours are exceptionally vibrant with outstanding realism and have a lightfast rating of over 200 years. Our canvases are printed at a staggering 720 x 1440 resolution, which we could not take full advantage of using a canvas of mediocre quality. That is why the canvas we use is imported from the USA, for its superior print quality and longevity. It is a 450 GSM matt poly-cotton canvas that is OBA free and will not yellow overtime like an inferior canvas, it is also archival certified for over 100 years (click here for certificate).

Once printed our canvases are given a day for the ink to cure, it is then protected by a revolutionary Matt varnish to help protect against UV light scuffs and abrasion. Once dry the canvas is carefully hand stretched around a 38mm thick kiln dried solid pine frame and then tensioned using wedges. Finally the back is sealed and a stylish bronze hanger is fitted for ease of hanging.

Mounted photos are produced on our large format Epson 9900 printer which takes full advantage of the Epson Ultra Chrome HDR Inks. These 11 different inks produce images with a superb colour gamut and vibrancy that are printed at a staggering resolution of 2880 x 1440, the final result is an image you can almost walk into.
