ESSENCE OF THE SNOWY

Snowy River Headwaters, Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales, Australia

On this backcountry trip I was camped out for four days near Australia's highest mainland peak, Mount Kosciuszko. I was seeking to capture the true essence of the Snowy River in winter, the headwaters above the man made influence on the river downstream. With fog obscuring this view in the days prior, on this afternoon I patiently waited as the fog ebbed and flowed before sunset cast a beautiful display of pastel colours across the scene before me. There is something special about being backcountry and totally alone on the slopes of the country's highest peak with a scene like this before you. A true feeling of witnessing the largely unspoiled essence of the Snowy River.

The Snowy River was once a major river in south east Australia before its flows were severely reduced to less than one percent after the construction of dams and diversions in its headwaters as part of the huge Snowy Hydro scheme. However, amongst the higher alpine catchment areas the river's course and surroundings remain relatively unchanged, draining the eastern slopes of the highest peaks in the Snowy Mountains. Capturing mood and emotion are what I regularly seek to do in my images, but it's often a challenge.

Australian Wall Art - Unframed Print

UNFRAMED PRINT

Museum quality, fine art paper and inks.

As a print only, this requires framing, allowing you to select your own mounting and framing options. The print has an additional 6cm white border around 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.

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.

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 for the image itself - the border and frame add approximately 10cm to each side of the print (ie 20cm additional length in total).

Australian Wall Art - Acrylic Wall Mount

ACRYLIC - WALL MOUNT

Frameless, glass like feel. A clean, modern look for your print. 

The photo is printed on metallic paper, creating a 'pearlescent' metallic gloss finish. The print is face mounted onto optically clear, museum grade acrylic which offers 99% UV protection.

The print is backed with treated aluminium, protecting your print from front to back. It is then finished with a diamond edge polisher.

Ready to hang on your wall, with a thin aluminium frame hidden behind the print.
