Description

A dramatic scene of the medieval Dunluce Castle silhouetted on the cliff tops as the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) lights up the sky. An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar light, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere), where their energy is lost. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits light of varying colour and complexity. The form of the aurora, occurring within bands around both polar regions, is also dependent on the amount of acceleration imparted to the precipitating particles. Precipitating protons generally produce optical emissions as incident hydrogen atoms after gaining electrons from the atmosphere. Proton auroras are usually observed at lower latitudes.

Specification

PRINTS
All prints produced with the highest quality long-life archive inks on 250g heavyweight paper and are supplied rolled in strong 7.5cm (3″) diameter postal tubes for reduced curl and safe transport. The pictures supplied suit standard frame sizes that are available in many furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea.

The black outline is to show the edges of the print and to demonstrate what the print would look like in a frame. The finished prints do NOT have the jskelly.co.uk watermarks shown in the previews on screen.

Shipping

I post pictures all over the world. So, if you have a loved one in far off places, enter their delivery address at checkout and I’ll happily ship to them directly.

Prints are shipped rolled-up in strong, wide postal tubes, ready for framing.

I can only ship framed prints to the UK and Ireland.
For safety reasons, framed prints are shipped with plastic instead of glass.

UK – Standard UK shipping usually takes around 1 – 3 days.
International – Standard (from approximately $10) or Tracked and Signed (from approximately $15) typically takes 7 to 10 days to the USA.

Standard 50x40cm pictures are kept in stock and usually dispatched within 24 hours (excluding weekends) – all other sizes are printed to order and usually take an extra 24 hours to dispatch.

*** As I live out in the country, last postal and courier collection times are quite early, therefore orders placed after 10am will likely not be shipped until the following working day.

I always do my best to ensure that orders are shipped within 1 or 2 working days.

Frames

Framed prints are supplied in black frames without a surrounding mount. Frames might vary depending what is available at the time, but I will do my best to ensure that frames in the same order will match. However, due to supply, frame styles for different sizes may vary.

For safety reasons, framed pictures will be shipped with a clear plastic face.

All my prints are in sizes to suit off-the-shelf frames as available from furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea, B&Q, etc.

Shipping to UK and Ireland Only
