Lady Macquarie’s Chair
Mrs Macquarie’s Chair is also known as Lady Macquarie’s Chair. It is located directly east of the Opera House on the eastern edge of the Royal Botanic Gardens. It’s a Sydney landmark, and hands down probably the best spot in Sydney to take a photo at sunset. As you can see from this photo, when you get a good sunset at this location you look in awe at the sheer beauty of Sydney.
On this particular evening when I took this photo, a massive storm had just passed over Sydney. I had gone there with a few friends to capture the storm as it rolled over the city. It was totally insane. The wind, the lightning and the rain were extremely intense. It was a very unpleasant shooting experience. It actually got a bit much for me and I retreated back to my car where I sat and waited for the storm to fully pass over. I was going to leave, but I decided to wait. I wanted to catch up with my friends afterwards. Then all of a sudden after about 20 minutes when the storm had passed over it was all calm. I started to see some pink in the sky. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I felt so wind swept from the storm I really didn’t want to get out of the car, but I soon realised the whole sky was going to light up, and these specula moments don’t last long. How could I not possibly take a photo of this rare opportunity.
I dashed out of there car and ran back to my original shooting position, the whole sky was ablaze now, I literally had moments to set up and take a photo of this scene. I was panicking, my hands were shaking, and adrenalin was pumping through my body. I had about 2 minutes to take a photo of this scene before it faded away. Thank heavens I made it just in time.
It goes to prove that after a storm, there will always be peace and tranquility.

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.
