Lighthouse Storm, Cape Otway - Great Ocean Road VIC

Size Guide


The rugged coastline of Victoria's south was known for its dramatic weather and iconic landscapes, and I was determined to capture the wild beauty of the Cape Otway Lighthouse during a fierce storm.

The day began with an ominous sky, as dark clouds gathered on the horizon. The wind carried the scent of the ocean, and the sound of crashing waves echoed through the air. I knew that a significant storm was approaching, and this presented the perfect opportunity to capture the untamed power of nature.

As I arrived at Cape Otway, the lighthouse stood tall and defiant against the brewing tempest. The towering structure, with its vivid red and white stripes, was a stark contrast to the tumultuous skies and churning sea. The rain-laden winds howled and whipped around me as I set up my camera equipment.

Photographing the Lighthouse Storm was no small feat. The rapidly changing lighting conditions and the relentless wind and rain demanded precise timing and settings. The dramatic contrast between the lighthouse and the stormy skies required careful adjustments to capture the scene's intensity and beauty.

With determination, I captured the moment when a bolt of lightning cracked through the skies, illuminating the lighthouse in a brilliant, otherworldly glow. The composition aimed to convey the incredible power and vulnerability of the scene, with the lighthouse standing as a beacon of strength against the forces of nature.

As I framed my shots, I couldn't help but be captivated by the symbiosis of elements—the fierce and unyielding power of the storm, and the steadfast, guiding presence of the lighthouse. Cape Otway was a place where the human spirit and the natural world came together in a tumultuous dance, and I was fortunate to have captured that powerful moment through the lens of my camera.

Leaving Cape Otway and the stormy spectacle behind, I carried with me a deep sense of respect for the forces of nature and the enduring resilience of human structures. The photographs I had taken were not just images; they were a testament to the incredible beauty and power that could be found when the natural world and human creations converged.

Photographing the Lighthouse Storm at Cape Otway had allowed me to immerse myself in a world of dramatic beauty and raw energy. It was a reminder that even in the most formidable and tempestuous corners of the earth, there was a story to be told and an awe-inspiring display of nature to be captured through the lens of my camera. Cape Otway was a place where the human spirit could find both humility and inspiration in the grandeur of the natural world, and I was fortunate to have captured that electrifying moment.

    To be honest, we prefer to ship artwork to you as a finished, ready-to-hang artwork (of course, rolled prints work best when ordering from outside Australia). We believe in quality, finished artwork delivered directly to your door and ready-to-hang. That's service. No more finding a framer, wondering if you’re paying too much, painfully choosing from myriad of frame options then waiting weeks for the job to be done. We use only the best quality materials to ensure your artwork will look amazing and last forever!


    We love our Framed Prints. Our stunning Deep Shadow Box Frames (with that sexy spacer between the frame and the print) are just to die for (Frame Measurements - 30mm wide by 40mm deep). The spacer allows the print to sit back from the glass, ensuring it doesn't touch and ruin your print. Offering the best in contemporary framing, your framed print will look AMAZING on your wall. Your print is printed on archival quality papers with archival inks, ensuring your print won’t fade or wrinkle. Your Tom Putt Print comes digitally signed and a small title is added to the left hand corner.

    The sizes on the website are for the OVERALL print size - which includes the frame and the digital matt (a white border is added to the print rather than a traditional matt board). We STRONGLY recommend that your artwork be supplied with special non-reflective ArtGlass or 99% UV Museum Glass which means that you can see the beautiful artwork, not the distracting reflection from normal glass. Choose from either the Raw Oak, White or Black finish to suit the style of your home. 

    * Raw Oak framing suits homes with wooden floor boards and Scandinavian style of furniture.

    * White framing suits Hamptons style of design, giving that light, beach feel.

    * Black framing suits a darken print and black and white images

    Forget what you know about canvas prints. Ours are COMPLETELY different.  We source our canvas from the best in the world. It is a 100% seeded, cotton canvas - the best quality canvas you can buy. What does this mean for you? It won't fade, wrinkle, or look horrible in years to come. In fact our canvas has a 75 year guarantee!

    Your Canvas Artwork is finished with a stunning Deep Shadow Box Frame in Raw Oak, White or Black (Frame Measurements - 10mm wide by 55mm deep).

    Canvas suits a home where you're looking for that painterly feel to the artwork. The texture in the canvas gives the impression that it is a painting rather than a stunning photograph.

    Canvas also works well to absorb any light opposite the canvas. So if you have windows opposite your artwork, order the canvas so you don't get any reflections.

    What is an Acrylic Print? Think the look of glass but it's not. It looks INCREDIBLE but it's not as heavy or dangerous as glass. It is the same look as many splash backs in kitchens. Your print is between two pieces of acrylic (approx. 5mm thick). The artwork is then hung on the wall using a baton system. Many of our buyers like this finish as it sits close to the wall. This finish suits any modern, light-filled home. Our Acrylic Prints are sure to create that WOW factor.

    What the heck is a Metal Print? I know, I thought the same! A Metal Print is a photographic print heat-adhered to a thin piece of aluminium, approximately 2mm thick. This keeps the print extremely flat. The print is coated with a high gloss vanish to protect it from dust, moisture, finger prints, etc. Your Metal Print has incredible impact and comes finished with a Deep Shadow Box Frame in Raw Oak, White or Black (Frame Measurements - 10mm wide by 55mm deep). This finish suits art that has punchy colours that you want to highlight in a room that has minimal reflections.

    Sometimes the simple things in life are often the best. A rolled print is ready for you to do with it what you want. All our rolled prints come with a white border to help it frame superbly. That means that you don't need to pay extra for matting when framing it. The white border is approx. 70mm wide on each side for artwork under 100cms (longest edge) and 90mm for artwork over 100cms. This white border is included in the total size of the print.
