After a great weekend photographing Autumn Colours in the Blue Mountains, Amanda and I were returning home, hoping to stop at a beach on the Central Coast for sunset on the way. (That was the plan at least!) We encountered heavy traffic transiting through North Western Sydney, and ended up stopping for an early dinner.
As we got onto the freeway, the sun was already on its last legs. I was resigned to not getting to shoot this particular sunset, which looked like it would be pretty amazing, lighting up several cloud banks and starting to go pink.
We were frantically trying to think of places close by that we could stop to shoot, when it hit me that we were coming up to the Brooklyn Bridge, on the Hawkesbury River. We turned off the freeway, headed onto the Old Pacific Highway and I made a frantic dash to the waters edge with the camera to setup the gear.
It was now that I discovered (of course) that I must have left my shutter remote actuator somewhere in Mt Wilson in the Mountains... Thankfully my camera has a time set mode that I frantically programmed to try and get the last of the colours being displayed.
I only just managed to pull it all together for this beautiful shot, featuring Spectacle Island as it sits on the Hawkesbury River, with the last of that amazing sunset lighting up the cloud bank behind, in this, one of the most easily and often seen (but least thought about) landscapes in the Hunter Region of NSW.

Each Framed print will arrive ready to hang on your wall, looking finished and fantastic.
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.
Our Facemount Acrylic Blocks make edition to any home or workspace, and also make a wonderful gift.
The image is professionally printed and then facemounted to 2cm thick crystal clear acrylic. This gives the image a 3D effect and is self standing. The standard size is 30cm x 10cm, however we can arrange custom sizes to order.
