The Acropolis, Tasmania
The Acropolis, at 1480 metres is one of Tasmania’s highest mountains. It is situated in the Du Cane Range in the 1.6 million hectare Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, which is one of the last true wilderness regions on Earth.
Summiting The Acropolis typically requires an overnight stay in Pine Valley for a pre-dawn start of the 650 metre vertical climb via a very steep track through rainforest. A walk across a beautiful plateau of snow gums and Pandanus trees is followed by the traverse of the Acropolis itself and a steep climb up heavily lichened Dolerite pillars where once on the summit you will be greeted by one of the most breathtaking wilderness views on earth.
Climbing through fog on this particular morning we ascend above the cloud layer to and upon summiting we marvel at a 360 degree view of many of the peaks in the Central Plateau region, which is carpeted by cloud.
True life Reproduction
The prints are produced by Simon Olding, who provides printing services for some of Australia’s best photographers and artists.
Wide gamut printer
The Epson 9900 & 4900 are equiped with the newest HDR inkset to extend the gamut of inkjet prints into previously unprintable regions.
Finishes & Sizing
Made on material using archival pigment inks that meet museum quality standards. Finished with a liquid laminate to ensure that the exposed canvas is protected from moisture, fingerprints and atmospheric contaminants such as aerosols.
Face Mount Acrylic
Printed on high gloss or metallic gloss paper and mounted onto the rear of a 6mm acrylic sheet. A styrene backing protects the print and the effect is finished off with an external frame to float the piece off the wall.
Printed on Canson® Infinity Baryta Photographique, which is arguably the finest inkjet paper available in the market. It is 310gsm, 100% alpha-cellulose, museum grade, pure white paper – which produces a wide colour gamut and deep blacks. Print life is between 75-150 years depending on if the image is colour or B&W.
The mat board option provides a frame ready print. The photograph is pre mounted on a high quality white, slightly textured surround, which enhances the look of the photograph. When framed, the mat board also protects the print by absorbing any moisture build up under the glass.
To assist the framing process and enhance the aesthetics of the frame, all canvas print sizes are inclusive of up to 50mm extra canvas on the sides printed with a reflected gallery wrap. This is where we create the sides of the canvas print from a reflected edge of the print. It looks as if the image continues around the side but it doesn’t waste any of the front of the image. As an option we can add a solid colour to the edge instead of a reflection of the print. We also add another 15-20mm of white canvas to help with stretching the image around the stretcher bar.
All paper print sizes are inclusive of a 10mm white border.
