This book is dedicated to flowers I have photographed over a number of years. From the striking rose to the smallest Australian Orchid hiding in a rock face these photographs capture the essence of nature in all its glory.
Peter Eerden, born 1950 in the Netherlands, emigrated with his parents and siblings to Australia in 1956.
His formative years were spent in South Australia though his adult years have seen him, in the main, a resident of Melbourne Victoria.
Peter's early forays in writing centered around editorials and short stories for a number of local community organisations. His first book 'Teyde - A Bichon Frise' is a historical and pictorial account of a dog breed that entered Australia from England in 1975 and written as part of his International Dog Judging career.
He married Patricia Birk in 2007 and through her encouragement entered a new chapter in his life with a developing interest in wildlife photography. He has travelled extensively and maintains a photoBOOK publishing presence both here and in South Africa.
