All prints are ultimate professional archival prints; silver halide based C-types are real photographic prints, created on light sensitive professional photographic paper using a finely balanced red, green & blue light source. The Photographic paper is FujiFilm Crystal Archive paper with a semi-matt finish the professional choice for framed prints . The paper is coated with a slightly stippled finish and gives a very natural photographic finish with subtle colour.

If for some reason you don’t want to frame this print, we can use Fuji Gloss Professional colour paper from the FujiFilm Crystal Archive range with a gloss finish, which accentuates the colour to give a punchy, rich feel, or Kodak Metallic paper which has a rich metallic base. The colours have a reflective, metallic and 3-dimensional feel to them, but these two options are not recommended for framed prints, For this option you need to let us know in the ‘Additional Information box’ when you are ordering.

Additional information about London Thames Barrier:

The Iconic Thames Barrier, the entrance to London City Thames. The concept of the rotating gates was devised by (Reginald) Charles Draper In 1969 and The barrier was designed by Rendel, Palmer and Tritton for the Greater London Council

The London Thames Barrier is located downstream from central London, due east of the Isle of Dogs, its northern bank is in Silvertown in the London Borough of Newham and its southern bank is in the New Charlton area of the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It has been operational since 1982, and its purpose is to prevent the floodplain of all but the easternmost boroughs of Greater London from being flooded by exceptionally high tides and storm surges moving up from the North Sea. When needed, it is closed (raised) during high tide; at low tide it can be opened to restore the river’s flow towards the sea.
