I went to Cowra with a group of photographers one year to shoot the beautiful yellow canola fields that are planted in different fields around Cowra every year. Click here to see a photo of the canola fields.
Cowra is a charming town surrounded by vineyards, waterways and pretty countryside in the beautiful Lachlan Valley. It is home to fascinating historical buildings and military history, as well as tranquil gardens and fine wines.
This image is very special to me, I took it at sunrise when a friend and I were driving back home to Sydney after an amazing weekend of shooting canola fields. We wanted to take one last sunrise photo on our journey home, but we had no clue where we were going to shoot. We just headed out and I said we should look for a single tree in a field to photograph. It’s not easy to find something like that when it’s still dark before sunrise. As we were driving I could see the sky was going to be beautiful and we just had to find a composition to shoot. We couldn’t miss this. My friend was driving so I was on the lookout. It was quite stressful as we were driving along, we could see the sky start to light up and we had nothing to shoot.
We came round a bend and there it was to the left of us. The perfect single tree in a field. We turned off the road, drove up to the fence, grabbed our gear and ran. We only had moments to set up and capture this image. I have to give credit to my friend who pointed out you could capture the sun through the centre of the tree, so we both managed to get this shot in the nick of time.
It’s moments like these that make landscape photography so exciting and rewarding.
PRINT TYPE DESCRIPTIONS
ILFORD Galerie Smooth Pearl – 310gsm
GALERIE Smooth Pearl Paper features the very latest HDR (High Dynamic Range) optically clear nanoporous coating for outstanding imaging performance. The high density heavyweight base has a natural photographic white tint to produce prints with excellent colour gamut and high sharpness.
The pearl surface eliminates glare and finger prints giving the true look and feel of a photographic print.
The photograph will be printed using UltraChrome K3™ ink which can produce archival prints with amazing colour fidelity and gloss level, while providing consistently stable colours. Incorporating high density pigments, Epson UltraChrome K3 produces prints with an extremely wide colour gamut allowing the reproduction of colours that were originally envisioned at the point of capture.
METTALIC Pearl – 250gsm
This paper has to be seen to be believed, it’s really gorgeous. It’s a high gloss media with a remarkable metallic pearl finish. With the right images it can really make them sing like no other paper – with a highly three dimensional look.
This paper offers exceptional image clarity and brilliant colour reproduction with a high-gloss metallic finish.
The photo is mounted to the back of a UV resistant acrylic glass sheet, creating an airtight bond and letting you view the image through a crystal-clear glossy surface. This mounting process preserves your images from scratching and fading and creates a near 3-D stunning visual effect. It also gives the image more depth and colour saturation due to the clarity of the acrylic sheet.
The image is backed with a white 2mm Dibond to add rigidity and use an aluminium sub frame to float it from the wall. Because of the different light penetration and refraction of acrylic glass compared to normal glass, the colours are more brilliant and the image sharper than compared to standard glass in a picture frame.
The image is printed on metallic paper for a pearl like finish. It comes with an easy hanging system and hanging bracket so you can put it up on your wall with ease.
The canvas prints are printed using the finest quality archival inks on cotton canvases.
The canvas prints are coated with an invisible polymer coating which creates a water resistant surface and further protects colours from fading. This finish ensures no glare or reflection and retains the texture of the cotton canvas.
The canvas is stretched around a timber frame and it is ready to hang.
