"Golden Beehives"

“After waking early to catch sunrise, I headed along the Motueka river in search of old buildings to photograph, but immediately stopped when I saw these beehives. Never had I seen such colourful ones before! I leapt over the fence as the sun pierced the clouds & bathed everything in golden light. Wow! And with just seconds to spare, I managed to capture a few frames before the light was blocked by cloud.”

“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!“
