Picked near my home in Eltham, Victoria, this image was created during Stage Four lockdown with my wife, Kerstin. Wattles are always such a happy flower for me, as they're such a visible sign that spring has arrived, and winter is over. Particularly this year, they arrived halfway through Victorian Stage Four lockdown, like a reminder that all things will pass, and hopefully soon things will calm down and we can get on with our lives again.
I print this on Canson Platine Fibre based paper, which in my opinion handles, feels and looks like the beautiful fibre based paper I used to love printing with in the darkroom. This is one of the first images I created with my new Phase One 100 megapixel camera, and on this paper the sharpness and quality just leaps off the paper. Stunning. I love it.
Sizes refer to the sheet I'm printing on, but due to aspect ratio the actual image size is a little different, so I advise waiting till you've got the print before buying frames, or better still get it framed professionally by someone like United Measures or Neo. Or, if you like I can sell it to you framed. Just get in touch.
