DEEP BLUE - Acrylic Desk Block

Blue Lake, Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales, Australia

I never feel as calm and relaxed as when I’m alone in the great outdoors. I’ve found it is in those moments in particular I feel drawn to capture photographs to share with others. That was certainly true on this morning, the rising sun clipped the tops of nearby mountains as I stood alone at the shores of Blue Lake high in the Australian Alps.

Blue Lake is one of only four cirque lakes found on the Australian mainland. The lake was formed when glaciers flowing from the Great Dividing Range converged and carved out a basin in the granite bedrock. Its valley contains the best-developed glacial features in the Kosciuszko National Park alpine area of New South Wales. Blue Lake's surface is entirely open water, and is frozen for about four months of the year; overflowing in spring with the melting of the snow.

Available in three acrylic desk block sizes:

  • 10cm x 10cm (2cm deep)
  • 19cm x 19cm (3cm deep)
  • 30cm x 30cm (3cm deep)


Our acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, mantlepieces, bed side tables - any horizontal surface.

The photo is printed on professional grade metallic photographic paper, using archival inks. It is then mounted on the back of an acrylic (plexiglass) block. It is finished with diamond polishing, buffing and final hand polish.

They are free standing, so no hanging system is required. These are a very popular option for gifts, farewell presents or if you need a small lightweight option to travel with. Acrylic desk blocks come in a box ready to gift.
