Every Australian landscape photographer and his dog has this shot or a version of it. I resisted shooting it for yearsbecause it seemed overdone and I don’t like to have the same shots as everyone else but now that I have it I really like it - I should have shot it years ago! It took me three trips (four hours from the Melbourne CBD, each way, including the walk up the hill if you don’t have a 4WD, which I didn’t). I didn’t know the area so the first time was for reconnaissance - is it an early morning or late arvo shot, what’s the best angle - that kind of thing. The second time I was there the light was terrible so it was a waste of time. The third time was looking just as bad as the second but as I was packing up my gear and planning the fourth trip the sun peaked through in the dying minutes to give me some warm, soft light. I quickly unpacked the camera and snapped away, covering as many angles as I could in the little time I had, feeling pretty lucky.

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.
