A view from Upolu Cay looking back towards the mountains of Cairns.
A unique view standing on a sand cay in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef, looking back towards the Australian coastline.
The Great Barrier Reef exhibits some spectacular islands out in the ocean; some are newly-formed islands like these sand cays on coral reefs. These sand cays are natural wonders that inspire awe in those who visit. Local boat owners sail out to these cays to spend the weekend in the clear night light under the stars. Visitors take trips on various vessels that visit the cays daily, or with helicopters or seaplanes that land right on the cays. One of the cays, Michaelmas Cay, is a sanctuary for a wide variety of sea birds that raise their young there.
Printing and framing:
Recently I have released this Gift Range of smaller sizes, using the 3mm thick Acrylic. These smaller Gift sized images come with optional hanging methods including Acrylic ‘panels’ where they are hung on the wall using 3M self-adhesive ‘velcro’ tabs. They are great because you do not need to drill any holes, nor screw or nail hanging hooks. This product allows you to simply stick the finished Acrylic photograph directly to the wall easily and securely in just minutes. This adhesion method makes picture hanging safe for rentals, offices, tiles, glass, brick, or concrete; with totally safe removal or repositioning when and however you like.
The Gift Range is available in the sizes: 24x10cm, 35x12cm, 50x16cm, and 75x24cm.
The Prices are as follows:
24x10cm (4 x 9 inch) – $58 (only a selected number of images available)
35x12cm (5 x 14 inch) – $98 (only a selected number of images available)
50x16cm (6 x 20 inch) – finishes: 3mm 'slim baton', 3mm with 'float-frame', 6mm with 'float-frame'.
75x24cm (9 x 30 inch) – finishes: 3mm 'slim baton', 3mm with 'float-frame', 6mm with 'float-frame'.
‘Slim baton’ is a flat/thin profile aluminium strip on the back of the finished Acrylic, hung with a matching interlocking slim baton rail that you screw to the wall.
‘Float Frame’ is a 'U' shaped aluminum frame on the back of the finished Acrylic piece that creates a 'float' appearance ... sitting off the wall around a centimetre. Again, hung with a matching interlocking rail that you screw to the wall.
(‘3M velcro system' can be used for all of the above options.)
Deliveries are fully insured and guaranteed to arrive in perfect condition. Domestic freight charges are included, and international freight is sent via Federal Express (TNT) and is depending on sizes (please see at checkout); priced from $18 (24cm) - $50 (75x24cm).
Printing: Printed with pigment inks on metallic photographic paper, and mounted on Acrylic glass; each image presents crisp, clear, and bright. Most people when first viewing the finished piece is convinced that it is lit from behind. Acrylic glass is a totally transparent material, with very little reflection, but is also very hardy and strong. It is also temperature and static neutral requiring very little cleaning. Available at various finished sizes and thickness of acrylic, please refer to the price list for all available options.
Cleaning: When cleaning simply use a feather duster and a microfibre cloth (if necessary use “isopropyl alcohol”).
