Dragon's Head, Rye, Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Size Guide


The allure of Dragon's Head, a spectacular natural formation on the Mornington Peninsula, had soared to new heights thanks to its popularity on Instagram. This iconic landmark had quickly become one of the region's most prized jewels, attracting photographers and adventurers from far and wide. I, too, was drawn to the siren call of Dragon's Head, eager to capture its ethereal beauty.

Dragon's Head was a unique and picturesque rock formation that was known for the challenge it presented to photographers. To capture it at its most photogenic, one had to be there when the tide was less than 0.5 meters. This requirement was no small feat, for under the wrong conditions, the ocean would swallow the rock shelf, turning it into a treacherous, slippery surface where photographers risked being washed away into the unforgiving sea.

On the day I ventured to Dragon's Head, I had meticulously planned my visit. I waited patiently as the sun descended below the horizon, casting a soft, golden light that bathed the landscape in a warm, inviting glow. The fading sunlight also ensured that there were no harsh shadows falling across the Dragon's intricate features, allowing its natural beauty to shine through.

As the minutes ticked by, I could feel the magic of the moment. The afterglow of the sunset illuminated the Dragon and the surrounding waters, painting the scene with an ethereal and enchanting radiance. The rock formation, jutting proudly from the ocean, resembled a mythical creature emerging from the depths, living up to its evocative name.

The sea, now calm and serene, served as a perfect mirror, reflecting the Dragon's majestic silhouette. The image captured the essence of this extraordinary place, where nature's artistry met human determination and patience. It was a moment that brought together the elements of earth, water, and light, weaving a story that transcended words and existed solely in the realm of visual poetry.

Photographers, like myself, often flocked to Dragon's Head, not just for the sake of capturing its beauty but also to experience the thrill of witnessing a landscape that danced on the border of art and nature. The challenge of getting the perfect shot was only surpassed by the reward of being part of a unique and enchanting moment.

As I framed my photograph and released the shutter, I couldn't help but marvel at the serenity and grace of Dragon's Head. This place was not just a geological marvel but a testament to the delicate dance between the land and the sea, and the remarkable transformations that occurred when the two converged.

The photograph I captured that day was a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit and the enduring beauty of the natural world. It was a reminder that when we align our efforts with nature's rhythm, we can capture moments of unparalleled magic and create images that tell stories that last a lifetime. Dragon's Head, with its ever-changing tides and ethereal glow, remained an enduring muse for photographers, a place where art and nature entwined to create breathtaking masterpieces.

    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

    If you're after more information on choosing the right artwork for your home, see our Artwork Buying Guide below.

    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.
