Peter's World

"Golden Highway"

"Passing through the velvet-like hills of the Lindis Pass between Mount Cook & Queenstown is always a beautiful drive, whatever the weather. But this time, it was pure magic. Fresh snow had fallen the night before & just enough had melted during the day to reveal the layers of tussock, which were now ignited by the golden light at sunset. Using a 210mm telephoto lens, I methodically captured 72 separate images & stitched these together to create one incredibly large file, preserving all the light & fine detail. This enables it to be enlarged to extreme sizes & fill very large spaces with dramatic impact.”

“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!“
