Dark Shallows

Limited Edition

Dark Shallows captures the enigmatic allure of Moody Lake Burbury on the fringes of Tasmania’s revered World Heritage Wilderness area, as seen through the lens of artist and photographer, Emma Coombes at The Elm and the Raven.

Coombes’ discerning eye reveals a scene of unparalleled tranquility. In this captivating composition, the waters of Lake Burbury possess an otherworldly quality. Coombes transports viewers to the serene shores, where the waters convey a silvery, opaque smoothness that cloaks the depths in enigmatic allure. Against this ethereal backdrop, a mountain range frames the waters edge, creating a sheltering and protective embrace, to provide a comforting presence in the stillness of the landscape. Dark sandy shores adorned with scattered seaweed extend to offer a grounding contrast to the ethereal scene.

Coombes captures the essence of this unique locale, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in its sublime beauty. “Dark Shallows” serves as a portal to Tasmania’s untamed wilderness, a reminder of the profound connection between humanity and the natural world.

Whether adorning the walls of your home or office, this Limited Edition Print is a testament to the timeless allure of Tasmania’s landscapes. It beckons you to explore the depths of a moody Lake Burbury, where mystery and tranquility intertwine in perfect harmony.
