Welcome to our fine art print sales page.
We have had a lot of enquires for unframed A2 Prints as shipping framed A2 prints is expensive. Whilst we are still providing a fully framed service we are also happy to offer a print only service for the A2 sized prints as it makes shipping a lot less expensive.
Unframed A2 Print Size (610 x 407mm)
This image was taken Mid May 2020, Compared to previous shoots it was actually planned.
This location is somewhere I visit quite a bit I have an app on my phone that will show you where the core of the Milky Way will be rising and at what time.. how good is that?
So at least I had a good idea in my head at least of how this image could possibly look, so after shooting some seascapes I waited around for it to become dark.
Photographing the Milky Way is relatively straight forward. It’s finding something interesting to light up and photograph in the foreground which can be the challenge.
In this case I was able to stand behind my setup and madly wave my light around every time a wave washed in, It must have been a funny sight if someone could have seen me down there in the dark!
This image evokes a feeling of connection, timelessness and change. Our universe has been rising over this rock shelf for eons, over the endless line of time the landscape has changed yet in our brief lifetimes remains relatively unchanged.
The title of this image is in recognition of our First Nations elders whom called it “Mother Emu” when this view of the Milky Way reappears in the sky it tells them that emus have built their nesting mounds and laid their eggs, it is a visual signal that it was time to forage for emu eggs.
Here the Mother Emu appears to be strutting around the headland with her eye firmly on me.
I’m often asked when people come across me on the coast “what are you photographing”? In truth I don’t always know, for me it always comes back to colour, light and movement on any given night I find myself chasing the light, the colour and the movement, I’ve always loved how a long exposure will allow you to see the unseen
This image was taken late in the evening at the back of Flinders it has a sense peace and tranquility about it. The deep rich blue is soft and easy on the eye and frames the drama that is this part of the coast it’s almost like a cosy blue blanket has been pulled up over the coast as the sun has set.
A late evening coming together of water and rock.
There’s an excitement, a real energy that comes with photographing the inter tidal zone when waves are exploding on it.
This early evening exposure softens that process whilst the electric blue and the rushing water from the shelf gives some sense of the energy that is being expended.
This is how it has always been.
Just one of a gazillion waves finding their way ashore on any given part of any coastline around our planet.
Oh so small
Space it’s big right, really mind blowingly big.
I remember when I was a child laying on my back and staring into the universe and just coming to terms with how insignificant I was in terms of all that space.
Then as I grew up with everyday life taking over I lost that sense of wonder.
This was one of the first images where reconnected to our Milky Way.
On this evening it felt like I could just step up into the stars.
Well at least for the moment, this vestige of a pier can be found in point Nepean national park, and was originally built as part of the quarantine station, How ironic in these Covid 19 times.. who would have thought that we would suffer from a pandemic.. and be quarantined in our own homes, it stands as a reminder of the past and the future, that nothing can be taken for granted.
Nature supplied the raw materials, Man constructed and now nature is taking back bit by beautiful bit.
I’ve always enjoyed the dance with the abstract.
Ever since way back when I realised the magic of a slow shutter speed and induced movement. I never really get sick of it.
Aqua is soft, Aqua is what I’ve played in since I’ve been existing, it’s what is essential for life.
The colours and contrasts in this Aqua is hypnotising I could and have looked at it for hours each time being something different, each time it induces a feeling that is hard to put a finger on, it’s subtle and colourful it’s the stuff that gives us all the ability to live.
With out Aqua there would be no existence for us to fathom.
Look closely it’s there, the only thing in this image that is man made.
Maintained by man to control the environment, ultimately to prevent livestock from wondering off the cliff.
Man’s time controlling this environment is just a heartbeat in time, even the weather shaped tree is but a blip over the time span that has shaped this coast.
Simple as it is the amazing colour of the sky gives this image a 3D quality, a depth, it feels like I’m in a snow dome and some giant hand has painted an unfathomable colour on the on the roof of the world.
Softly Softly into the dark
Firstly I love the colour palette in this image, soft greys, pinks and blues. Everything is infused with that soft pink almost apricot colour it gives a warmth, almost welcoming look to an image which is full of violence, at the end of a journey
I wonder how far this line of energy has traveled to arrive here?
How many times has this occurred in this spot?
Even so each wave is like a finger print, every wave is unique how could it not be?
Out of all the waves I photographed on this evening this is the one that resonated with me.
This is the one that I printed to prove that it even existed.
Would it have even existed if I wasn’t there?
Now I am diving too deep into existential reality.
Tread lightly whilst going “Softly Softly Into The Dark”
Daryl Gordon Photography is pleased to offer for sale bespoke limited edition fine art framed photography prints. Early sales and inquiries already indicate there is a demand for Daryl’s atmospheric photographs, many that depict the changing moods of Mornington Peninsula beaches. It was always our intention to present Daryl’s photography at exhibitions in our newly renovated studio in Balnarring, but circumstances prohibit us from offering that experience for a while.
In the meantime we have created the opportunity for you to own beautiful limited edition works from a passionate professional photographer and surfer who spends countless hours around the Peninsula coast. Take a few moments to reflect on these stunning images.
We are offering fine art photography in strictly limited
print runs of five (5) in either two sizes:
Framed A4 (420 x 340 mm), or
Framed A2 (730 x 570 mm)
Our prints come fully framed and ready to hang. We want our clients to feel special about owning a limited edition print made by Daryl, therefore print run numbers have been deliberately kept to a minimum. At Daryl Gordon Photography we take care of everything for you. We choose the finest quality archival print paper for each individual photography print because different images look better on different types of paper. Also, we carefully select the mounting board and frame to best showcase the printed image.
Also on offer are single edition prints. These are exactly what we say: you will be the only person in the world to have this particular image. It will never be printed again. Period!
We think of it like the artist who sells his painting only once.
This image can be printed as big or small as you require. It will be signed, numbered and sealed as a certificate of its authenticity.
