Peter's World

"Wild & Windswept"

“The weather had been crazy the previous day as a group of us flew south & we were greeted by fierce hail & winds as we landed on Mason's bay. Nice! We took shelter in a rumpty old homestead during the day as the weather sorted itself out & conditions slowly improved. I gambled it might be worth a crack at sunset, so a few of us hiked up to this vantage point overlooking “The Gutter”. The wind was still incredibly strong, but created a small gap in the clouds, allowing the sun to squeeze through & highlight this wonderful, grand vista. The next 5 days were brilliant sunshine, so we couldn't have timed it better. And yes, that water really is as cold as it looks!”

“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!“
