Burnt Snow Gums, Mount Hotham - VIC

Size Guide

Photographing the snow gums in winter at Mt. Hotham, in the wake of a devastating bushfire, was a poignant and deeply moving experience. It was a testament to the resilience of nature, a story of rebirth amidst the ashes and a reminder that life, even in the face of destruction, found a way to prevail.

I had visited Mt. Hotham in the past, capturing its stunning landscapes and the ethereal beauty of snow gums blanketed in winter's embrace. This time, I returned to see how the mountain had fared in the aftermath of the bushfire that had swept through the area. The devastation had been heartbreaking, with charred remnants of trees and scorched earth bearing witness to the fire's fierce path.

As I ventured into the blackened landscape, my heart ached at the sight of the snow gums that had been consumed by the flames. Their once majestic forms now stood as haunting silhouettes against the winter sky. It was as if the mountain itself mourned the loss, and the air was heavy with a profound sense of loss.

However, amidst the desolation, I began to notice signs of hope. The snow gums, with their tenacious spirit, were showing the first stirrings of life. Small green shoots emerged from their blackened trunks, a symbol of nature's determination to carry on, to rebuild, and to heal. It was a poignant reminder that life, even in the harshest of circumstances, found a way to endure.

With my camera in hand, I framed the shots carefully, capturing the stark contrast between the blackened trees and the vibrant green of the new growth. The snow gums, though scarred and wounded, possessed a kind of ethereal beauty in their resilience. They were survivors, and their story was one of hope and renewal.

The winter landscape, blanketed in snow, added an element of serenity to the scene. The stark white of the snow contrasted with the charred trunks and the vibrant green of new life, creating a striking visual composition that was ripe for photography. It was a testament to the circle of life, where death and rebirth coexisted in a delicate balance.

As I continued to photograph, I couldn't help but feel a deep sense of gratitude. The snow gums at Mt. Hotham had faced a devastating bushfire, but they had also demonstrated the incredible resilience of the natural world. The photographs I took that day were a celebration of life's enduring spirit, a reminder that even in the face of adversity, nature found a way to thrive.

Leaving the mountain, I carried with me a profound sense of hope. The snow gums at Mt. Hotham were a symbol of strength, a testament to the indomitable spirit of nature. The photographs I had captured told a story of resilience and rebirth, a story that would forever be etched in my memory and in the images that celebrated the enduring beauty of Mt. Hotham in winter.

    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.
