"Crimson Cape"

"The pohutukawa lined coast from Wkakatane to East Cape was a stunning sight during December 2023 & here at Waihau bay they were just beautiful. I managed to time my northern trip with the one crystal  clear day whilst they were at their peak flowering, which made these sights all the more impressive. In twenty years of chasing these elusive flowers, these were the best displays of crimson blooms I've ever seen, quite remarkable. And & I love the old red woolshed too, it's a nice little iconic addition to the scene."

“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!“
