Choice of Paper
This is the second installment in my Cheetah series and part of my nature photography portfolio. Following the lead of the first picture, this one is also printed on Hahnemühle FineArt Pearl (285 g/m²) for the paper. The reason why I chose this paper is that it’s pearly coating enhances the print’s deep and natural contrasts and increases the pictorial depth. As an added benefit, the print is also water resistant. It comes with a passepartout – white border – of 1cm (0.4 inches).
Please note that the print comes without a frame. The picture with the frame just serves illustration purposes. However, if you want to order it with a frame, please contact me.
This picture shows a Cheetah cub – probably day-dreaming. Cheetahs are the world’s fastest land animals; and this also holds true for the cubs which are amazingly agile. Cheetahs can go from 0 to 100 km/h (0 – 60 mph) in 3 seconds. Thus, they make their incredible speed an advantage in their hunting patterns. As opposed to other predators, Cheetahs don’t chase their prey to death, but wait for the perfect moment and start chasing it from roughly 200 hundred feet away as they can cover that distance in a blink.
