Lake Heron

Edition Size: 100 Signed & Numbered Prints
Location: Lake Heron, Canterbury, New Zealand

On my 2019 Autumn trip of the South Island I was very fortunate with the beautifully clear Canterbury afternoon I had dedicated to Lake Heron as the days before and afterwards were not so good. But on this day it was perfect and upon arriving I met one other hardy photographer who also had been watching the conditions and had chosen to head here for dusk. Over the next couple of hours we were treated to a beautiful and subtle show of nature as the sun slowly set and the light delicately changed over the mountain range across the lake. The Ashburton Lakes are so amazing and an absolute photographers paradise – i can’t wait to get back here again to capture more of this incredible landscape.

Limited Edition Artworks

A Richard Hume Limited Edition Print is the culmination of an exacting process perfected over many years and designed with the single aim of producing the most stunning photographic artworks available.

This process includes incredibly high-resolution image capture utilising some of the world’s best film and digital camera systems, a post production process designed to ensure what is presented in print output is what Richard saw while taking the photograph, and a commitment to the world’s finest museum grade fine-art archival printing and framing standards.


The ultimate outcome is an exceptional artwork that will complete your living space and last through generations.

Every Limited Edition Print is produced by Richard personally to his own exacting standards. Additionally each print is produced individually to order and strictly limited to its edition size – when a print series is sold out no additional print will ever be produced.

Only when I am completely satisfied do I personally sign and number an individual print. 


The print is then registered and a personally signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity issued for it.

I work with clients all over New Zealand and around the world, with a very personalised service designed to create an exceptional artwork for your space.
