The 'old' Flinders Pier originally built in 1866-69 extended 325m into Western Port Bay and was replaced in the 1970s. The Pier originally provided local farmers with better access to the Melbourne market and a variety of goods were shipped out from Flinders Pier (including onions, railway sleepers from Shoreham, bacon and dairy produce). A shed was built at the same time as the pier to store goods.
It is home to much marine fauna and flora including the spectacular Weedy Seadragon. Additions in 2011 have been made with a duplicated concrete section running alongside the wooden pier.
The older wooden section has now been closed off and deemed unsafe and has been earmarked for demolition. The local Flinders community are petitioning for it to be saved.
It is such a beauty with rich colours in the timber that are magical to photograph.
All images are available on either a fine art print on archival cotton rag paper or canvas.
Prints are completed on archival papers that are resistant to deterioration with excellent longevity. This means acid-free / lignin-free papers, which can preserve the product for a very long time.
Fine Art Paper
Photo Cotton Rag papers are the world’s most popular papers used by photographers. These papers produce outstanding prints that feature brilliant colours, deep blacks, striking contrasts and perfect reproduction of detail. The paper is acid and lignin-free, meeting museum quality for the highest age resistance.
Some of the prints are panorama, therefore are much longer than the regular print. Please contact me if you are after one of these prints to discuss sizes.
Fine Art Prints are printed with a border. Generally, sizes A4, A3 & A2 have a 60mm border, A1 has an 80mm, and A0 has a 100mm border. If you want a different size border then please indicate it in the 'Comment' section.
Alternatively, we can also print without a border and have the image fill the frame. If you would like the print without a border, please indicate this in the 'Comment' section.
