Peter's World

"Alpine Holiday"

“I left Erewhon Station at the foot of the southern alps under thick fog this morning, but when I reached this position at Lake Clearwater, the fog was just beginning to burn-off.  So I sat & passed the time until this iconic high country scene slowly revealed itself  - it was definitely worth the wait! I really think this print typifies the south island & I doubt you would mistake it for anywhere else in the world. We’re lucky to have such a big, beautiful backyard.”

“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!“
