Peter's World

"King Of The Castle"

"A public walkway through these fascinating limestone rock formations at Castle Hill station offers infinite views of this geological wonder. I scouted this trail the day before & although it impressed, I sought an image to capture the whole grandeur & decided that this distant position offered the best vantage point of the entire rock field. With snow forecast that night, I stayed nearby & returned at dawn, in time to witness this spectacular scene unfold. As the sun rose, it dodged in & out of the clouds, which made it difficult to correct & join the 52 separate frames. But the result is this epic panorama which captures the magic."

“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!“
