Enter Peter Latham's World.

"Scarlet Valley"

"It's a beautiful drive along this ridge where the land rolls down to the sea at Cochranes Gap on the Awhitu Peninsula. These gnarled pohutukawas are remnants of a once lush coastal forest, their December blooms providing a welcome splash of colour.  A pair of cows are staring up at me as I captured this scene, this is pretty steep country for them & you can their cattle tracks are clearly embedded into the hillside."

“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!“
