Gordon’s Bay, Sydney – BT02

Gordon’s Bay

Gordon’s Bay otherwise known as Thompson’s Bay is an beach within the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, Australia, located between Clovelly and Coogee beach. The bay is renowned for various reef and coral and as a result is a popular snorkeling area with an abundance of marine life. It is also known for small aluminium boats known as dinghies which are lined up on wooden racks upon the dry sand belonging to members of Gordon’s Bay Amateur Fishing Club.

The little boats make a great subject to photograph, and after scouting out the beach I really wanted to take a photo of one of the boats at the edge of beach near the headland. I was lucky to have spotted one of the boats that wasn’t tied up, so I proceeded to drag it across the beach into the position I wanted. I thought the boats were light, but I was very wrong, it took a lot of effort and muscle to drag it into position.

Once it was in position I had a few moments before the sun was about to rise. I wasn’t expecting much of a sunrise, but to my sheer surprise, the sky lit up, I just couldn’t believe it. All the elements lined up for me that morning. I was extremely happy. I then had to drag the boat back to where I had found it, but it was so worth it.

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.
