Peter's World

"Ice Breaker"

"When clients were seeking a wave image for their new kitchen's glass splashback, I knew one beach would offer the best opportunity - Otama. So after an initial shoot failed to impress, I spent another day scanning the beach & shot hundreds of images from various positions. Until finally, I captured this spectacular wave where my camera's shutter froze the water like ice. And with such sharp precision, this image really is epic. But as I stood there & observed each wave, they really didn't look very different to each other. But that's the unique power of photography & recording a split-second, revealing beauty which would otherwise go unnoticed." 

Also available as a meticulously crafted Fuji Flex print which displays incredibly fine sharpness, colour & contrast, to create the ultimate photographic master works. Prints are face-mounted under True Vue 99% U.V. conservation clear acrylic & mounted onto Di-Bond for a modern frameless look. A sleek hanging system on the back ensures they sit proudly off your wall, for the very best 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!“
