This beautiful greeting card shows Sycamore Gap in the beautiful county of Northumberland, England. This famous sycamore tree grows in a ‘gap’ alongside Hardians Wall near Crag Lough in the Northumberland National Park. It is known as the most famous tree in England, a title greatly helped by featuring in the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. It also appeared in the video for the film’s soundtrack hit single ‘Everything I Do’ by Bryan Adams which broke all sorts of musical chart records.

What is a cyanotype?
I love working with the old Victorian photographic processes and one of my favourites is the cyanotype which has a distinctive blue and white colour. If you would like to learn more about the process then check out these articles here on the website. Cyanotype Art and the Cyanotype Process. How to make a cyanotype tutorial. Inspired by Anna Atkins.
What does FSC mean on a greeting card?
