THE SLEEPING GIANT

#TeMataPeak #HawkesBay #LoveHawkesBay 

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a Kiwi lady living in the UK who is in the midst of setting up a new website.

She was looking for an image of Te Mata Peak which depicted 'The Sleeping Giant' in profile.  I had a couple of recce trips and did a Google Streetview search to try and find the best location to shoot from.  

My brief was to to have a moody sky and the typical Hawkes Bay summer coloured landscape, without too much green.

I first of all gave my client this image, but ended up providing a panoramic image who's proportions are better suited a website banner.
