David Gordon - Signed prints

In addtion to his promise of the historic signed print of Millennium Night(See entry for 12th Nov for more details), photojournalist David Gordon has very generously given us two further signed prints.

Double click on either image to enlarge.

Yes was originally taken as part of David's work covering the Scottish devolution referendum. I think those colours would make a fantastic positive and cheering image to see first thing on a wintry morning.

The haunting Calanish Standing Stones are an ancient Celtic monument on the Isle of Lewis. Lewis being another beautiful landscape threatened by turbines. Local tradition explains the presence of these stones by saying that when giants of old, who then lived on the island, refused to be Christianed, St.Kieran turned them to stone. Another local belief of this Gaelic-speaking community was that when the sun rose on midsummer morn, the 'shining one' walked along the stone avenue, his arrival heralded by the cuckoo's call.

Both prints are approximately A3 size. All the prints in the auction have been professionally mounted ready for framing and are shrink wrapped to protect them.
