SUNRISE - Desk Block

Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales, Australia

I woke up the morning of this photograph with little hope of even being able to see sunrise as it seemed the weather was so poor. The evening before a blizzard set in and the wind had been so strong that it was difficult to even stand upright and the visibility was essentially a white out. Throughout the night the wind seemed to ease very little. When I awoke in plenty of time before sunrise, I almost didn't venture outside as from what I could see and hear, things hadn't improved much. However, on venturing outside, despite the high winds there were breaks forming in the cloud. Huddled behind some rocks for protection, I waited for sunrise and soon enough the sun broke through over Kangaroo Ridge and Charlotte Pass. Witnessing stunning sunrises like this makes the effort of enduring the cold winter elements worthwhile in these harsh alpine environments.

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.
