"I discovered this outstanding vantage point a few weeks earlier, but the early morning light on that occasion was less than this scene deserved. So I waited patiently & followed the weather closely, until I saw the cloud forecast (click here) for this morning had some clear air in the east, mixed with clouds coming from the west - maybe some potential to develop dramatic light at dawn? I took the chance & dropped everything, set my alarm for 3am & drove the 2 hours north for another attempt. And after the 30 minute hike to these sensational nikau, I arrived just as the light was forming this spectacular display."

“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!“
