Peter's World

"Hard Muster"

"This sunrise captures the first light on this majestic range, comprising Mitre Peak 2621m on the left, Mt. Alarm 2877m and Mt. Tapuae-o-Uenuku 2885m on the right, the highest peak in the South Island outside the Southern Alps, which makes it a popular peak with climbers. 

Staying in a musterer's hut on Bluff station allowed me access to get this close at this hour, which was very much appreciated. This is difficult country to farm, with the station being abandoned several times over the years as it simply became too hard & uneconomic. Hence the title "Hard Muster", it  seemed a good fit!"

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!“
