Artist's description:

Truly one of the great wonders of the natural world. I had no idea that the reef would look so spectacular from the light aircraft flight my wife booked for me because the sea was too choppy to enjoy a boat trip to the reef.

The contrast with the deep blue ocean is remarkable. The patterns and hues are constantly changing even across the fraction of the reef's huge expanse we flew over. This tiny heart shaped piece of the reef is only 12 yards wide.

If you are ever in Australia and have the means, I urge you to take a flight over the Great Barrier Reef.

As with all my images, this is dry mounted on a backing board to avoid wrinkling in future. The contemporary white box frame I used to hang this image in my house looks great with this image. I've also supplied it with a black frame and it looks equally good.

Alternative sizes, print methods and substrates are available. For example:

7" x 5" digital print on archival photographic paper in 10" x 8" matt black frame: £ 25
16" x12" C-type print on archival photographic paper in a 20" x 16" black matt frame : £ 99
24" x 18" premium quality 100% cotton stretched canvas ready to hang: £149
18" x 14" Giclée print on Hahnemühle photorag paper in a 24” x 18” contemporary box frame: £195

Please contact me through Artfinder to discuss your preferences or possible options if you have a particular budget in mind.
