Impact!!! The word I yelled while watching this pillar of light explode through the night sky during the May 11th Aurora storm in Tasmania.

On Saturday, May 11th, a series of powerful X-class solar flares hit the Earth consecutively, creating the biggest solar storm in over 20 years. The aurora it generated was visible to millions of people globally, even in places that don’t usually experience it. Watching these flares go off one after another earlier that week. I knew I had to book a flight to Tasmania immediately, hoping to capture this rare event.

At around 3:30am on May 11th, the first flare hit the atmosphere, creating a stunning Aurora Australis display with bright red, purple, green, and orange hues visible even through the thick cloud cover. More impacts occurred throughout the day, and the storm only grew stronger. I knew the magical light show would reappear when it got dark again!

In anticipation of favourable weather and clear skies, I moved further south before dark. As dusk fell, the lights reappeared with even more vivid colours. Watching the aurora felt like waves crashing over an ocean shore as the night continued. The aurora would burst into light and colour as each impact occurred, dancing throughout the skies above. Then, it would gradually calm and become more subdued.

After watching the display for nearly two hours, the sky was in this softer and faint state. I had stopped taking images and was engrossed in conversation with a good friend, discussing how lucky we were to witness such a spectacular event. Suddenly, I noticed the sky getting brighter in front of us. A beam of light ripped through the sky, towering as high as I could see into the stars. It was unbelievable! I quickly ran to get my camera pointed in the right direction and captured this image. These photos and witnessing this storm in person was truly a highlight of my photography career.

Common Questions

What does ‘Limited Edition’ mean?

Limited Edition means that there will only ever be a pre-determined number of prints produced of each photograph. Once the edition sells out, there will never be another reprint or sale of that photograph from the artist.

How do you hang the artwork?

All of our pieces will arrive with the necessary hanging equipment already attached to the back of the frame. In addition, one set of drywall anchors will be included with each purchase for mounting on drywall only. For more detailed information on how to hang your artwork, please refer to our FAQs page.

How long will shipping take?

We know you’ll be waiting in anticipation to receive your new artwork at your door! Orders are generally dispatched within 14 days after you place your order. Once shipped, the arrival timeframe is an additional 7-14 business days, depending on the final destination and courier. Please note that we cannot ship to a PO Box, and remote areas might need more time for shipping.  If there is going to be a delay beyond this timeframe, we will be in touch.

What is your refund and return policy?

Marc James Limited Editions are custom-made, and as such, if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return it within 7 days of receipt and receive store credit for a future purchase. Returned items need to be in a like-new condition.  All artwork goes under a final quality assurance inspection before being carefully packed to ensure its safety during shipping. Every piece is also insured during transit. In the unlikely event that your order arrives damaged, please contact us within 48 hours of delivery to qualify for a replacement, and we’ll organise it, free of charge. However, any damage reported outside of this window will not be eligible for a replacement.


The Modern Era Of Fine Art

Displaying an artist's work can be done through various mediums, but some stand apart over others. All Marc James' pieces are printed on one of the highest-grade fine art materials available today - aluminium dye sublimation printing. This special process involves sublimating the ink directly onto a sheet of light-reactive white aluminium using heat and pressure. The result is a print with exceptional brightness, vibrancy, and clarity that most other printing techniques cannot match. The prints are so luminous that they almost appear backlit at times.

The final product merges this with a hidden frame attached to the back to let the piece float elegantly off your wall, creating the perfect modern art piece for any home or space.
