"Shotover Gold"

“Prior to this morning, I had never explored this part of the Shotover river before, it's a stunning backdrop & so typical of Central Otago. As I waited each time for the Shotover jet to come roaring back down the river into view, clouds kept blocking the sun, until finally after a couple of hours, I got a clear break & I was able to capture this scene. I believe it sums up both the beauty & flavour of Queenstown quite succinctly (prints are also available without the jet boat!)”

“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!“
