Peter's World

"Mackinnon Pass"

“What a phenomenal last day of spring! After fears the track would close due to heavy snow the night before & the risk of avalanche, my hiking group finally got the green light to go & we were able to walk under these phenomenal conditions. Such incredible light & drama, I was in a tiny pocket of sunshine & in large prints you can see it was still snowing. One of those very rare days that stands out as a real highlight, I also had to defend my camera bag from a pair of mischievous Keas, who thought they might like to rip into it, but snowballs came to my rescue!"

“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!“
