St Monans in the snow

Welcome to Imagenic

The first picture to be featured on the website is a panorama of St Monans, taken during the snowy winter of 2010.

It shows the entire vista of the village that can be seen from atop the east pier harbour wall, with the kirk at the far left and the windmill just visible in the distance on the right. Many of St Monans’ houses in the harbour and Braehead areas are seen in good detail, with the west pier and creel strewn middle pier in the foreground.

An interesting feature (that also pinpoints when the photographs were taken) is the partly demolished Miller’s boat shed on the right of the panorama.

The picture is a composite image created from a dozen overlapping photographs. The width of the resulting panorama was originally over eleven times its height, but the image has then been squashed to a 4×1 aspect ratio.

I had the idea of doing this when I wanted to use it as a featured image on my photo blog. I liked the result so much that I made it into a 120 cm x 30 cm canvas photo print which I have subsequently exhibited. Other people clearly find it a fascinating image too, so after several requests, I am now making copies available to buy.

This 120cm x 30cm photo canvas is available from £80 (price on 2cm stretcher frame, other options on request)

Please contact me to discuss availability in other formats, delivery, or if you are in the St Monans area, to arrange to view the canvas print of this image.

And since I don’t carry big stocks of prints, if you fancy one for Christmas, don’t leave it too late – give me time to order extra copies if I need them!
