Banks Peninsula Terrain Map
A map commission with a focus on the beauty of Banks Peninsula’s terrain and coastline.
I’ve been wanting to revisit my favourite place to map for a while, and this was the perfect opportunity. The terrain of the peninsula with its myriad bays and beautiful topography has always fascinated me, so I’ve tried to draw them out here with the natural hillshading and coast/lake waterlines.
