Peter's World

"Ocean To Alps"

"I had traveled the west coast the week before with bad weather, but a promising weather forecast lured me back. I scouted all day for any new possible vantage points, but I could never get high enough above the tree line, so with a clear morning ahead, I decided it was time to get airborne.  

After shooting some aerials near the much photographed Lake Matheson, we traveled north along the coast until we reached this point just south of Okarito. The morning sun was striking the sea mist above the waves and with the first light on the Southern Alps with Mounts Cook and Tasman, it really was a stunning sight to behold."

“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!“
