Three Little Birds – Premium Framed Canvas Print | Ready To Hang Wall Art
From only $268.14 WITH FREE SHIPPING
This original photograph by Michael Lees is printed in Queensland Australia by a master printer using the world’s best 450gsm archival canvas. We do not print onto paper, unlike most photographers, because paper has a number of problems. It is fragile, easily marked, susceptible to humidity, and does not age well. Our canvas solves all these problems and we estimate it will still look as good as the day you bought it a lifetime from now.
The museum-grade canvas is infused with archival quality pigment inks and sprayed with a protective coating to reduce damage from UV light or touching the print. It is left to dry for 3 days before it is stretched by hand over a hand-cut, double-profile hardwood (not pine) support frame. We will then place a ‘floating’ frame around the canvas to present the work beautifully. There is no need for glass protection, meaning you get a clear and unobstructed view of the work with no reflections or glare. You get to see the work how Michael intended it to be viewed.

Sometimes we just need to get away from it all. Some People can go to extraordinary lengths to do that. The vastness of the Australian landscape often leaves me breathless. The seemingly endless sky allows us to disappear into ourselves. Freeing ourselves from the confines of our normal existence. But even though we can feel isolated and alone we are never truly on our own. If we just look to look around us and we will see that there are others there to help and guide us. This image is one of my all-time favorites. Many people who first view it often miss the fact that the pilot of the hang glider is not alone. Two small birds join him and the trio flies in perfect formation. I am often asked how I managed to capture this image. Was I following in a plane or helicopter behind? Were the birds specially trained to fly like that? The truth is a bit more humble than that. A case of being in the right place at the right time. I was on Mount Tamborine on the Gold Coast hinterland and shooting members of the Canungra Hang Gliding Club as they held took to the sky. I stood on the steep hillside and as the glider became airborne I stepped in behind. The two birds were startled by the sudden appearance of this huge contraption in their midst. They attempted to outrun the glider and inadvertently made this interesting formation, which I captured with my Canon 70-200mm. A second later, it was all over. The glider had moved away and the birds had gone their separate ways.
