Morning light brushes multi-coloured flowering stems of the Tasmanian endemic Richea scoparia. Halls Buttress is located in the Walls of Jerusalem National Park in Tasmania’s Central Highlands, east of Cradle Mountain/Lake St. Claire National Park. The park owes it’s name to an imposing wall of dolerite that rises steeply above a long plateau of alpine wilderness. Beneath the range is a collection of small tarns, cushion plants and stands of Richea scoparia. This plant, while incredibly scratchy and difficult to walk through, displays spectacular white, pink and red, candle-like flowers from September to October. Scoparia in bloom is particularly iconic of Tasmania’s western alpine and subalpine regions.
The images by Peter Dombrovskis have been through an exhaustive remastering process. The high resolution scans from the National Library have been painstakingly retouched to remove embedded dust and scratches. To ensure accurate colour rendition, they have been referenced against publications that Peter was proud of and the prints have been checked and approved by Liz Dombrovskis.
The images are printed with pigment ink on Canson Platine Fibre Rag, a 100% cotton rag archival paper. These prints will last over 100 years and are amongst the most archival processes currently available.
Remastered by fine art printer, Simon Olding.
