Animal: Magellanic Penguin & Chick
Location: Falkland Islands, (
Islas Malvinas)

 

Backstory 

Share a priceless view with a Magellanic Penguin family that call this burrow their home.  The burrow seemingly constructed with only the purpose to raise their chicks also boasted one of the best views as it sat halfway up a mountain peering down at the endless white sand beach.  Magellanic penguins are some of the most affectionate penguins and this is the perfect spot for each parent to gaze out from their mountainous view as they show love for their partner each morning and evening by preening one another.

In an area rarely traveled, I pitched my tent alongside these penguins half way up a mountain to share their magnificent view.  Magellanic penguins are one of the most skittish penguins, but they warmed up to me as we both went about our lives living side by side.  Instead of watching me cautiously from their burrows when I showed up, by the time I left they didn't move a muscle as they suned themselves inches away from me.

As the sun continued to rise above the mountains, dark clouds rolled in at a low elevation.  As I looked to the left of my tent a Magellanic Penguin and chick were sitting outside their burrow with rich red undertones surrounding them.  After grabbing my camera, I slowly inched my way over to them crawling on my stomach until I was close enough to frame the photo.  As I sat their waiting with my camera up to my eye, the dark clouds blew further into the adjacent mountains revealing the rich dark blue sky. This moment shows why Mother Nature is truly the greatest artist of us all.


Each photo captured has a deep and intricate backstory, articulated above, that is printed alongside your print to give you the full behind the scenes look for each fine art photograph you purchase.


 

Print Options

Mediums

Acrylic Print: unmatched resolution, clarity, Dmax, vibrancy, and an unrivaled 3D perspective when observing the final product

What is an Acrylic print?  An Acrylic print is one of the highest quality prints money can buy.  It is the most popular medium purchased from us is our acrylic print identical to photos hanging in art museums due to the look and feel of the image appearing backlit.  Acrylic prints are a higher quality medium compared to the more common, and lesser quality, metal prints.  Acrylic come ready to hang with a built- in wall mount and require no frame.

Thomas only uses the highest quality print engineers in the industry to ensure standout prints by relying on proprietary methods superior to all other printers.  

Surface coat options: Both options offer UV protection, however the different surface coats will optimize your viewing experience depending on where you want to hang our print.  

Clear surface coat is best used in controlled environments with special lighting, or in an area with low glare from sources like windows.  Clear enhances your viewing experience in these environments by maximizing the 3D effect making the image appear backlit.  

UV surface coat is best used in areas with an uncontrollable lighting environment, such as placing the print near bright windows. 

Heavyweight Photo Paper: vivid colors, deep rich blacks, and brilliant bright whites give an authentic and impressive feeling when looking at the final product

What is the heavyweight photo paper? Heavyweight photo paper is like you traditional medium you know and are accustomed to, but ours is much more.  We only use high quality and color calibrated paper and printers to ensure an accurate and lifelike final product.  Tailored to each specific image, we determine which of our papers yields the most pleasing results.  The papers we normally use are: Fuji Crystal Archive Professional Super Type PD Luster, Fuji Crystal Archive Pearl Paper, Kodak Endura Metallic Paper, and Ilford Pearl Paper.
