Enter Peter's World.

"Bon Appétit"

"I arrived at Wainui earlier in the day, eager to explore some fresh angles of Akaroa, which lies on the opposite side of the harbour. The clouds & heavy mist had begun to clear as I reached the wharf & to my delight, these seagulls were waiting for the fishing boat to return - with their free scraps for lunch! It reminded me of "Bonjour Akaroa" which I captured on the opposite side of the harbour years earlier & I felt this could make a great scene. So I started to capture multiple sets of photographs, stirring the seagulls each time to launch them into flight (anybody watching must have wondered what on earth I was up to!) But I persevered until I was confident I had the right set of images, which I later assembled to create this wide panorama."

“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!“
