SNOW SOLITUDE

Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia

During summer I found this snow gum and given its location, I knew that in winter it would be well buried in snow after a good dump. I just had to be sure I remembered where to come back to during winter! On my first visit after some heavy snow falls on Mount Hotham I went out and visited the tree. It was covered in snow but the clouds and sky didn't offer me the shot I was after. The weather wasn't right.  I visited Hotham a number times over the following days and finally, after a few days of bad weather I treked out again to this tree. I was certainly thankful for my snow shoes given the deep blanket of snow. The conditions were horrible, heavy cloud, strong winds, and freezing temperatures, but it made for perfect conditions for the photograph I wanted - except the wind. By the time I got to the tree, the wind had died down but the thick fog remained, so it was just a matter of time. Not long before sunset, the light softened giving a creamy look to the landscape that you can see in the final photo. I had got the photograph I had envisioned so many months earlier.

For me 'Snow Solitude' really sums up so much about the Australian Alps in winter. Captured while shrouded in fog, this snow gum withstands the harsh winter conditions as one the highest snow gums in Victoria. Surviving on the heights of Mount Hotham, it has somehow escaped the ravages of bushfires in the area in recent years. The gum stands alone as testament to its survival against the harsh alpine conditions it has to withstand during the cold winter months while covered in snow and ice.

Australian Wall Art - Unframed Print

UNFRAMED PRINT

Museum quality, fine art paper and inks.

We use fine art cotton paper from either Hahnemühle or Canson. This exceptionally high quality fine art paper is acid free and printed using genuine pigment inks - favoured by galleries and collectors because of their print longevity.

As a print only, this requires framing, allowing you to select your own mounting and framing options. The listed size includes a 8cm white border around each side of the photo, allowing sufficient room to accommodate various framing choices.

Unframed prints come rolled in a protective tube, making them our recommendation for international customers.

FRAMED PRINT

A clean, simple and modern look, suitable for any home.

Small Frame:The small frame (2cm wide x 2cm deep) is limited to our smallest sizes of framed prints. Your fine art paper print is mounted with a matt border, framed and completed with acrylic that protects against 70% of UV. The listed size is for the total finished framed dimensions of this artwork

Shadow Box Frame:Your fine art paper print is mounted and framed in a contemporary shadow box frame (27mm wide x 48mm deep) that is available in white or raw wood.

It is completed with museum grade acrylic (rather than glass) as it is light weight, transports well (doesn't break) and protects against 99% of UV.

Framed prints come ready to hang. The listed size is the total finished frame size, including the frame and border around the image.

Australian Wall Art - Acrylic Wall Mount
