Peter's World


“No matter how much one travels New Zealand, there's always so much more to discover - often much closer to home than you realise too! I had heard of Orokawa Bay, but never visited before. So this mid December, I woke early & made the journey. After the 45 minute bush walk to this hidden gem, I was initially disappointed to discover I was two weeks too late for the main pohutukawa flowering. Not about to give up that easily, I walked to the far end of the beach & to my delight, this solitary branch's blooms were beautifully lit by the mid morning sun. A truly heavenly summer's day!”

“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!“
