Peter's World

"The Rugged West"

"Driving south of Fox Glacier on this cold frosty morning, I stopped to admire this timeless scene with the sun's first light warming the Southern Alps. This rustic farmyard has long since been abandoned and I cannot help but wonder what stories this farm could tell? I bet there’s a rich history of colourful characters that worked here. Years ago when the early settlers broke the land in for farming, they had to be tough to survive in this place.

Spot the native pigeon / kereru perched in the beech tree with his plump white belly!"

“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!“
