Life magazine reproduced this image as a double-page spread with the caption: Like poet Thomas Campbell's rainbow, that 'triumphal arch, that fill'st the sky,' the glass pole curved shimmering across the blue above Perth, Australia, as New Zealand pole vaulter Kevin Gibbons rode its whiplash towards the bar high above.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
