This is the monochrome version of "Hot Breath" which is a finalist in the Australian Geographic Nature photographer of the year.
It was a cold Sydney winter and this local Magpie used to sing every morning.
I loved how there was hot air coming from her beak so timed the shot with the final exhale of song.
This shot took 3 months to achieve to get the exact exhale of song and smoke position.
This image is printed on special photo rag pearl paper (please read the additional info section), so turnaround is 7 working days. As it is a more heavier art paper it is more expensive to print.
The image will be printed with a 2cm white border to fit onto your paper size, this is to ensure you have an area to hold the print as the black ink can be prone to fingerprints.
Available Paper Sizes:
A1: approx 60cm x 85cm, limited edition of 25
A2: approx 60cm x 42cm, limited edition of 50.
A3: Approx 30 x 42cm, limited edition of 100.
A4: Approx 28 x 20cm, Open Edition.
