Panarea and Stromboli, December Sky, 2020
On a mid-December afternoon I went with a couple of friends and locals to a wonderful viewpoint high up a hill on the island of Lipari.
There are wonderful views all around but of course I was most interested in the view from here towards Panarea and its satellite islands, with Stromboli beyond.
The day had been mostly wet and cloudy, but sometimes these conditions offer the most interesting light and contrasts for photography, and the lovely water-laden December sky was particularly evocative with the dramatic clouds.
I created this image as an ultra high resolution, multi shot panorama, so as to create this wide view in immense detail. There are 8 individual shots digitally blended together, captured with a powerful telephoto lens, the phenomenally sharp (and similarly expensive!) Nikon 300mm f2,8 VR lens. When combined with the Z7 camera as here, which is, for image quality, unmatched by any other camera, the results are mouth-wateringly delicious with extraordinary clarity, and sublimely rich tonal range and subtlety of contrasts.
The crystal clear atmosphere of the day is here evocatively rendered. Incredibly Stromboli is 40km distant from this location where I captured this image, but here seems like it’s right next to us!
Please feel free to drop me an email for any queries.
This image is available to order as either unframed fine art prints on Hahnemülhe art paper, or ready to hang

If you need to have the print shipped, an unframed print is the best option. They are museum quality archival giclée prints on Hahnemülhe fine art paper. Rolled up in a tube, they’re easy to send to anywhere in the world.
Acrylic glass prints
These are superlative, ultra high resolution prints, with the print bonded between 6mm of acrylic glass, and an 3mm aluminium dibond base. An aluminium bracket is on the back for hanging. They look sleek and modern with no frame.
Acrylic glass with wooden frame
These acrylic glass prints are perhaps even more elegant with a solid wooden frame, available in a variety of different finishes, including white, maple, oak, dark brown alder and black. This is combined with 2mm acrylic glass on aluminium
