Peter's World

"Golden Oasis"

"The Molesworth had been on my radar a long time & finally, the opportunity presented itself. We were staying at Upcot station, looking at some horses actually. But we fluked brilliant clear autumn weather, so aside from the horses, my mission was to make the most of the wonderful conditions & try to return home with something great...

On our third day we drove south through Molesworth station & a couple of hours later in the middle of nowhere, a group of golden poplars & willows caught my eye, so I stopped to investigate. After clambering down the bank through thorny bushes & wild roses, I discovered this idyllic stream. What a stunning little spot in the middle of this vast, barren valley! After capturing my first scene, I explored further downstream & found this beautiful oasis. Wow, this was it! I could have stayed here all day, except we had to push on. But what a brilliant little find this was!"

 

Also available as a carefully crafted Fuji Flex print, the ultimate photographic print process that is available. This is face-mounted under True Vue 99% U.V. conservation clear acrylic & mounted onto Di-Bond for a modern, frameless look. The incredibly fine detail & impact that is portrayed with these is astounding & forms part of a stunning new range of imagery.

“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!“
