This is a beautiful image of star trails set against these snow-capped mountains, which appear serene in their stillness as the stars seemingly continue on their journey in the background. - Melissa Brobby, competition judge
Namcha Barwa is the most beautiful snow-capped mountains in China. The name of the mountain means 'spear thrusting into the sky' in Tibetan.
This untouched land is also home to the purest of starry skies, the trails of which weave a wide net even on full Moon days. The Namcha Barwa, like a spear, pierces this net. - Zihui Hu
Our Custom Prints and frames are all handmade to the highest standards. As each Custom Print and frame is made to your required specification, they take a little longer to prepare. Custom Prints are printed on sustainable, matt 250gsm conservation digital paper. Unframed prints are carefully rolled with acid free tissue paper inside a sturdy cardboard tube. Frames are made in the UK from sustainably-sourced woods.
Custom Prints (those which are customised by choosing a size and frame) are made to order and therefore take a little longer than our standard fulfilment times. Please read our Delivery and Returns page for our latest information about UK and international shipping.
Please check the size and frame options carefully so that you are happy as once ordered we will be unable to change.
Every purchase supports the work of Royal Museums Greenwich.
