THE SUMMIT

Mount Feathertop, Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia

From an early age I've been drawn to the summit of Mount Feathertop, with some of my earliest bush-walks as a child walking up this mountain. On this occasion, I was camped out on Mount Feathertop for five days in early winter and was keen to capture a photograph of the summit from up close. The weather however had other ideas with persistent snow and low cloud, precluding even seeing the summit for the first few days. As the sun set on my final day I was set up in position sure that the weather was finally improving. Briefly the cloud lifted in front of the summit with cloud remaining on the other side creating a dramatic backdrop. However it didn't take too long again for the cloud to return. As I returned to my tent for the night I felt happy to have captured what was a brief moment in the ever changing conditions over the summit of Mount Feathertop.

Mount Feathertop is the second highest mountain in the Australian state of Victoria, rising to 1,922 metres (6,306 ft). It is usually covered in snow from June to September. Unlike most other Victorian mountains, Mount Feathertop has steep summit slopes instead of a rounded summit dome. It is this aspect that makes it great to photograph in winter, as it is the only real Australian alpine 'peak' that gets covered in snow. Snow remaining in the summit gullies in spring gives the appearance of feathers - hence the name "Feathertop".

Australian Wall Art - Unframed Print

UNFRAMED PRINT

Museum quality, fine art paper and inks.

We use fine art cotton paper from either Hahnemühle or Canson. This exceptionally high quality fine art paper is acid free and printed using genuine pigment inks - favoured by galleries and collectors because of their print longevity.

As a print only, this requires framing, allowing you to select your own mounting and framing options. The listed size includes a 8cm white border around each side of the photo, allowing sufficient room to accommodate various framing choices.

Unframed prints come rolled in a protective tube, making them our recommendation for international customers.

FRAMED PRINT

A clean, simple and modern look, suitable for any home.

Small Frame:The small frame (2cm wide x 2cm deep) is limited to our smallest sizes of framed prints. Your fine art paper print is mounted with a matt border, framed and completed with acrylic that protects against 70% of UV. The listed size is for the total finished framed dimensions of this artwork

Shadow Box Frame:Your fine art paper print is mounted and framed in a contemporary shadow box frame (27mm wide x 48mm deep) that is available in white or raw wood.

It is completed with museum grade acrylic (rather than glass) as it is light weight, transports well (doesn't break) and protects against 99% of UV.

Framed prints come ready to hang. The listed size is the total finished frame size, including the frame and border around the image.

Australian Wall Art - Acrylic Wall Mount
