Peter's World

"The Beach"

“Captured from the same vantage point as "The Ruggedy Isles", I waited for the sun to rise a little more to bring out the colour in the water & switched lenses to my long 240mm telephoto. I wanted to capture a compressed view to highlight all the intricate details of this remote beach, jelly like waves & the vast sand dunes, peppered with native pingao grass. This remote area is totally unspoilt & is visited by only a small number of hardy hikers each year. And what a privilege it was to witness it under such spectacular light, it was worth fighting all those relentless sandflies for!"

“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!“
