This image is taken at the aptly named "Wreck Beach", off the Great Ocean Road in Victoria.
The anchor is from a ship called the Marie Gabrielle, which wrecked on this spot in 1869, carrying a load of Tea from China. The anchor is all that remains of the wreck in this incredible location, a testament to how rough the seas can be in this spot, far from this idyllic but cold summers morning.
We parked for the night above the wreck, and made the trek down the 400 or so stairs at about 4am in order to be there for first light. Finding the anchor in pitch black conditions was no picnic, we weren't able to scout the location beforehand. Nonetheless, we made it and I set up for the image.
The sunrise was extremely dissapointing with minimal light, and the clouds above refused to fire up. I was just packing up my equipment to leave when Amanda pointed up and said excitedly, "It's happening!"
I set my stuff back up, slightly adjusted for the clouds and fired away as the clouds grew from pale grey to fluoro pink and then orange. It was all over in about 8 minutes, but it was just enough time for this shot. The walk back up the stairs was no picnic, apparently we climbed 22 stories in 340m to get back to the car.

The print is digitally printed using the best printers available on a metallic paper, and then the "face" of the image is mounted to the 6mm sheet of perfect Acrylic using an optically clear film. This then has a backing and wall hanging system attached, resulting in a perfect, frameless look with an added level of depth and clarity to the image.
The perfect flatness of these prints and the modern, frameless edge gives these prints a real "WOW" factor.
These prints come with an easy wall mounting rail, they can get heavy in the larger sizes so installation with screws into your wall is preferred.
