Peter's World

"A Perfect Winter"

“I was stunned by this scene early morning, but the low winter sun was glaring into my lens at that time, so I took a few snaps & continued on my journey. But when I stopped a couple of hours later & took another look at these, I decided I just had to turn around & go back again, to try the afternoon light! So back I travelled & then waited a couple more hours for the sun to lower into position & for the wind to die down, allowing these mirror reflections to form. Then, for just a minute, the light was forced through a gap in some trees, which created this incredible arc of light around the edge of the lake. Wow! It was perfect timing, but patience played a big part!”

“When Peter delivered our pieces, we couldn't believe the incredible detail. The images on his website - impressive as they are - really didn't do our prints justice!“
