"Rangitoto Taharangi"

“As I drove down the coast from Port Jackson to Colville, I kept a close eye on this evening’s light as it developed around Auckland's Rangitoto island. Then suddenly, the sun dropped below the clouds & this show was on! I started recording a series of images & this was one of the last, after the sun had descended below the horizon. With the intense light, I was unaware of the Auckland Sky Tower's presence until I downloaded the files, which came as a nice surprise! Due to the earth's curvature, only the top of the tower is visible from this distance, but the dramatic light & unique perspective created this striking scene.”

“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!“
