"Dancing Mist"

“With 62mm of rain forecast for Milford Sound on this day, I made a special trip for the short-lived waterfalls that adorn these sheer cliffs during heavy rain. Guided by my weather app which predicted it would ease at lunchtime, I arrived in the middle of the day, just as the rain stopped. The light had improved & this mist was forming lower in the valley, great timing!  As this mist drifted up the valley & across the rockface - during the ten or so minutes that it took to capture all 20 frames, I had no idea how it might turn out, until I stitched them together in my studio. And to my shock & surprise, this ghostly image resembling a dancing ballerina appeared. Fantastic!"

Very fine detail & huge resolution means this is perfectly suited for very large applications up to 6m wide, such as printing onto glass for bathroom walls, splashbacks etc - P.O.A.

“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!“
