Peter's World

"Lazy Days"

"I couldn't imagine a more serene, lazy summer's day. The familiar summer sound of the cicadas, bees buzzing in the pohutukawa blossom & the gentle lapping of the waves on this pristine stretch of coast - total bliss. And where is everyone? Not here, thank goodness! I shot this epic file at varying points of focus to maintain as much detail in the foreground of the Queen Anne Lace (daisies) as possible. It caused me a few headaches when stitching all 40 frames together, but it allows this idyllic scene to be enlarged to super sizes!"

“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!“
