JOURNEY TO THE SUMMIT - Acrylic Desk Block

Mount Feathertop, Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia

I photographed this scene from a distance, a few weeks after camping out below the summit and having made my own winter ascent to the top of Feathertop. At full size, you can see two people returning down from the summit (which sits outside of the frame to the right). 

At 1,922 metres high, Mount Feathertop is the second highest mountain in Victoria. I have been to the summit in all seasons, but getting to the summit in winter can prove more challenging depending on the weather conditions. With an icy approach and cornice edges that can collapse, Mount Feathertop has claimed many lives, especially amongst those seeking to ski or snowboard into the southern gullies that make up some of the most extreme ski runs in Australia. Despite these hazards, the journey to the summit in winter offers breathtakingly picturesque views of the surrounding Victorian Alps and a satisfying reward for the effort to get there.

Acrylic desk block size: 50cm x 18cm (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.
