Peter's World

"Summertime"

“I had often admired the stature of this grand pohutukawa, but I'd only ever seen it with sparse blooms before. That was until christmas day 2009, when I packed a flask of tea & mince pies & made my pilgrimage in the early hours to capture this scene. You can spot Great Barrier island on the distant horizon too, it was the clearest of mornings. A rare christmas day when the weather was simply picture perfect.”

“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!“
