Peter's World

"Grace & Grandeur"

Part of a new range of pastels which I've created to evoke a nostalgic feeling, with subtle tones & vintage style framing. Available on metallic canvas which is created from an optimal blend of metallic, silver & pearlescent surface finishes to portray exceptional detail. I love it!

"After retreating from gale force snow on the Kepler track the previous day, I figured we might have better luck a little further west, up the Routeburn. And what a great move that turned out to be, with breathtaking autumn weather. But on the first day's hike to Lake McKenzie, a steady breeze kept blowing a continuous spray from the falls onto my lens. So the following day I tried again & with much calmer conditions (& no spray), I captured this grand vista befitting its title 'Grace & Grandeur'."

“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!“
