Peter's World

"Morning Glory"

“I scouted several beaches around Auckland the previous day, on my hunt for any early pohutukawa displays & found these brilliant blooms on the shores of Cheltenham beach, with Rangitoto island perfectly positioned behind. But with the weather set to deteriorate, I knew these flowers wouldn’t last long. So the next morning I was up at 5am & I captured these brilliant blooms at first light. And as I packed up to leave, the clouds were already dominating the sky, so it was gratifying that I'd made the early effort!”

“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!“
