Peter's World

"Flock Hill"

"Seeking a unique perspective to highlight the dramatic rock formations of Flock Hill station, I made a steep climb & entered through these two rocks either side. Wow, it was if I had entered the gates to another world (& in fact, the movie "Narnia" was filmed here!) Arriving here mid-afternoon, I explored the ridge line, but I decided that this position where I first popped out on the top, was by far the best position. So I watched & waited until the sun descended, capturing this stunning vista at precisely 8.15pm. Neighboring Castle Hill Station lies to the right in the distance, with State Highway 73 intersecting the two."

“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!“
