"Mc Kenzie's Country"


Sorry, too late! All prints in this edition are sold & are no longer available.

“Taken in early September, I’d waited until a big anticyclone came over the south island & dumped a heavy load of snow, then flew down to catch it.  After 3 days & 2500km, I had literally overdosed on beautiful snow capped mountain scenes, but I captured this classic image in the last hours before I flew home. The illusion is that I used a wide angle lens, but I never would have got close enough before the Merino sheep would have run I used a longer lens & cropped the top & bottom off - which also eliminated an ugly wire fence below!”

“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!“
