A beautiful summers day back in 2014. I made the 10 minute journey to Whitby then turning up onto the moor towards pickering; and turning off for Goathland. Driving a a short distance out of the village towards Beck Hole; and dropping onto Goathland Waterfall Trail. As the North Yorkshire Moors Railway crosses Eller Beck; two of the Yorkshires most stunning waterfalls can be found. Up stream is Water Arc Foss also known to some as Upper Thomason Foss; the actual Thomason Foss is 50 meters down stream. And it is here where i started my waterfalls photography for the day, using a Lee Big Stopper which is a 10 stop filter. Exploring the area; i began trying to find a good composition for this waterfall. Thomason Foss is a favourite for waterfall photography ; so finding a unique composition is difficult but i was pleased with this one stood knee deep in water. We have reproduced this picture often since it was taken; we offer it as a photograph or fine art canvas print; as we do all our images.
A large and deep pool is at the bottom of Thomason Foss which attracts locals in the summer for swimming. Been part of a popular walk it is also admired by people passing by; although Thomason and Water Arc are not the most accessible of Goathlands waterfalls they are perhaps the most striking. Other waterfalls in the area include Nelly Aire Foss and Mallyan Spout. Goathlands waterfalls are only one of few reasons that bring tourists to this part of The North Yorkshire Moors. Added appeal comes from the proximity to Whitby and the Yorkshire Coast; but this part of The North Riding was made famous by the 60s TV drama Heartbeat. Heartbeat followed the life of a village police man or”bobby” who investigated sheep rustling and other wrong doings on the moor; usually involving Mr Green Grass “Bill Maynard”. Goathland became the fiction village of Aidensfield and the local pub and garage became famous world wide.
Just above Thomason Foss is George Stevenson’s North Yorkshire Moors Railway between Goathland and Grosmont stations. Goathland Train Station has to been one of the best preserved train stations anywhere in the world. Not surprisingly it has been used many times in films; but its most famous role has to be when it was transformed into Hoggsmeade Station in the Harry Potter movies.
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.
