Peter's World

"Queen Of Dawn"

"I first discovered this great setting which looks back at Queenstown from the opposite shores of Lake Wakatipu a couple of years beforehand. I had been searching for an original viewpoint to capture the full majesty of the lake and mountains, clearly this location had huge potential. Finally in autumn 2022, the weather conditions looked promising and I gambled that they might deliver an epic sunrise. It's a mammoth drive to get to the opposite side of the lake, so you can imagine my excitement when I noticed this colour forming in the sky. It took some time for the colours to peak and they didn't last long at all. This spectacular show soon faded away and an hour later, clouds had dominated the sky. My hunch about the weather was right and I was rewarded with this colourful display, the Queen of all dawns!

This 180 degree view depicts Glenorchy on the left, Queenstown left of centre then the Remarkables to the right, followed by Walter Peak and Mt. Nicholas.  

Also available as a carefully crafted Fuji Flex print, the ultimate photographic print process that is available. This is face-mounted under True Vue 99% U.V. conservation clear acrylic & mounted onto Di-Bond for a modern, frameless look. The incredibly fine detail & impact that is portrayed with these is astounding & forms part of a stunning new range of imagery.

“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!“
