After spending the afternoon studying several different weather websites and looking up at the clouds for a sense of what the weather might do, a last minute decision was made to jump into the van a head towards the colonial named Mt Warning. After pulling over on a random dirt road and assembling the back packs full of camera gear, a 'scramble' up the side of a mountain began until the right spot was found. As the atmosphere was beginning to feel thick with moisture and the light was rapidly changing, the tripods and cameras were quickly set up and pointed towards the sacred mountain.

Made with a matt inkjet coating, this canvas meets the highest industry standards regarding density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness.
