Another shot that took a long time to come about. The Whitsundays are a collection of islands off the east coast of Australia near Airlie Beach in Queensland (south of Townsville, north of Mackay) which is a long drive from Melbourne, where I live. Every time I went there hoping to shoot Tongue Point and Whitehaven Beach (the iconic Whitsundays shot) I was unlucky with the weather. I wanted blue skies with a low tide and kept getting grey cloud or rain, so, rather than hang around hoping for a change, I’d keep driving, heading wherever the weather was better. I kept dropping back in on various trips during the next year or so but it was always bad light, no matter the forecast and, at around $400 an hour for the plane, you want to be pretty sure of getting the right conditions. Finally, on my umpteenth visit and third flight, I had enough sun at the right time of day to get this shot. It’s a beautiful part of the country and I'll definitely be back for more aerials and maybe one day I'll actually get to walk on the beach. There's another Whitsundays shot here

Note: Both paper and canvas prints come rolled in acid free tissue paper inside a heavy-duty mailing tube (signature is required upon delivery).

The standard sized paper prints - A2, A1 and AO - are designed to fit off-the-shelf frame sizes but for custom framing (like the panorama prints which aren't standard sizes), I'd recommend taking them to a professional framer.

The canvas prints are much harder to do yourself so should also be taken to a framer. All the canvas prints have a mirror wrap edge (sometimes called gallery wrap) which means the image appears to continue around the side of the frame but it's actually a copy of the image, as if the image were held against a mirror. This way none of the image is 'lost' around the side, it just looks that way.

If you have any questions about the prints, the images or anything else, I'm always available through the contacts page.
