WHITLAM IN WHITE - Acrylic Desk Block

Margaret Whitlam Pavilion, National Arboretum, Australian Capital Territory, Australia

The National Arboretum was covered in thick fog as I arrived early. I was hoping to capture sunrise, but the weather had other ideas given the limited visibility. Instead I found the Margaret Whitlam Pavilion, usually an icon visible from a great distance, shrouded and only visible up close. The conditions created the perfect atmosphere to capture the architectural lines of this impressive roof line.

The National Arboretum Canberra has 94 forests of rare, endangered and symbolic trees from Australia and around the world. You can walk, jog or cycle on over 20kms of walking tracks that wind through the 250 hectare site. 

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.
