Peter's World


“Affectionately know by many as "Tiri", I stayed a few days on this fabulous island bird sanctuary & explored its many corners. Seeing the potential with this view of Rangitoto, I timed this with the evening sun as the tide was coming in. I wanted to capture the backlight of the breaking waves, but with a fair wind blowing, I knew this would be tricky. I shot multiple frames to ensure I had a set that could join seamlessly - & luckily it worked! And you can just make out the Auckland city skyline & an Oystercatcher on the beach!”

“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!“
