Manly Beach is located on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and it is famous for it’s great waves and surfing. It’s actually where the world’s first surfing contest was held in 1964, making it one of Australia’s most famous beaches. It’s a tourist hotspot as it’s so easy to get to. You can easily hop on a ferry at Circular Quay and get to manly within 30 minutes.
There are quite a few storm water pipes on Manly Beach that head out into the ocean. It’s probably best not to think about runs through those pipes into the ocean, and just focus on how they make great subjects to photograph.
I had always wanted to take a picture of the Manly pipes towards the southern end of the beach. I picked this particular morning as it was nearly high tide and I wanted the water flowing up and around the pipes, plus it looked like it could be a colourful sunrise. As I was shooting the sky started to go pink and I thought to myself it would be really interesting if I took a long exposure to smooth out the water. So I had to act quickly and put a filter on my lens to block the light which enabled me to capture this image.
This image I am particularly proud of because it was picked to be on the front cover of the ‘Australian Photography’ magazine for the November 2017 issue.

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.
