Photo Description

Wynnum-Manly, Brisbane Queensland.

Not long after I had moved to Brisbane I was searching on Google Maps one afternoon (again!) and came across what looked like remains of an old structure out in the water. The “Indiana Jones” in me had to go and investigate and find out what it was! It was forecast for completely clear skies which is not the optimal conditions for landscape photographers, but I made it my plan to go check it out in the morning.

With a 45 minute drive ahead of me, I had to be up at 4:00am to be able to get there around sunrise (5:30ish). Arriving in almost pure darkness if it weren’t for the street lights, I walked out to what I could only make out to be the remains of an old wooden jetty of sorts, but all that was left now were a pair of stilts or sticks. After getting some photographs here, I asked a local who said according to them, they were originally used for the cleaning of local boats, so at high tide they would lift the boat on top of these stilts and then clean under the boat once the tide had dropped. Now the locals just know them as the “Bird Perch”… quite fitting I thought considering all the avian nuggets that they were covered in!

Product Materials Used

Paper Types Used

Lustre paper - This is like a blend between matt and glossy paper and is one of the highest quality papers within the printing industry. It has a beautiful look to it and the feel of a professional, high quality print.

Metallic paper - Metallic paper adds a unique flair to your photographs. A high contrast "chrome on paper" look, metallic paper adds extreme vibrancy to colours, giving your image greater details and depth.

Canvas Prints

We only use the highest grade, fade resistant HD pigment inks and premium quality 400gsm, museum grade, tight weave Hahnemühle archival canvas. Every canvas print is also coated with a non-cracking UV protective coating.

The canvas is then stretched around an eco friendly, kiln dried wooden frame and finished with professional framers tape and hanging wire.

All canvas prints are also printed at a super high resolution (2880 dpi) using EPSONS ULTRACHROME HDx technology, giving amazing clarity and ultra vivid colours!
