Peter's World

"Whaler's Cove"

“This was great timing on this day where the pohutukawa blooms were so spectacular in this afternoon light, their perfect pincushions were glowing so bright. Whaler's Cove is a beautiful bay on the southern shores of Great Mercury island, a popular shelter for boaties & I think the prettiest beach anyone could hope to find. Even more so with the trees ablaze like this, it really was magic!"

“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!“
