RUSSELL SURPRISE - Acrylic Desk Block

Russell Offices and Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia 

Sometimes a sunrise comes along that just blows your understanding of colour possibilities. This autumn morning was one such occasion. I was set up to photograph the sunrise when the sky on the horizon began to turn an amazing pink colour. Over the next few minutes it intensified and resulted in the impressive colour in the sky and reflections you see here.

Canberra's Russell Offices are a complex of buildings home to the Australian Department of Defence and headquarters of the Australian Defence Force. Located adjacent is the main office building of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO).

Acrylic desk block size: 50cm x 18cm (3cm deep)


Acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look and make excellent gifts. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, and mantelpieces.

Each 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 a final hand polish. 

Since they are free-standing, no hanging system is required.


All Scott's acrylic desk blocks are delivered Australia wide free of charge. Postage rates apply for international delivery.


We hold a range of stock in the gallery. Your acrylic desk block will be dispatched within 2 business days if it is in stock. If not, it will be made to order and dispatched within approximately two weeks.
