2019 Grand Prize Winner - @kaiskiphoto
Wow, I´m super-stoked that my picture got nominated and even more stoked that so many people liked it and it was chosen ? So here's the story behind it:
We went to Canada for the first time ever in October 2017 and we travelled Vancouver Island for 3 weeks in an RV. When we arrived in Tofino, we went straight to Crystal Cove Beach Resort and asked them for a site because we only heard and read the best about this place. We were lucky enough to get a nice site (without booking anything in advance) and fell in love with this place immediately. On the second day in Pacific Rim National Park, I asked my girlfriend on Long Beach if she would like to become my wife and she said YES! ?
So Tofino became this very very special place to us! We planned to stay only for 2 nights but then decided to ask if we could stay a little bit longer because we liked it there so much...and of course, the friendly staff at Crystal Cove booked us for another night ?
In September 2018 we came back to the Cove to spend 3 nights of our honeymoon there and again it was stunningly beautiful. The picture was taken during the late afternoon/early evening of October, 14th 2017 when the sun slowly started to set and the light was already fading... It was our last night in Tofino and I tried to capture the beauty of the sunset over Crystal Cove.
I´m not a professional photographer, but have a passion for outdoor photography and try to take my DSLR camera wherever it's possible...so for those of you who are interested, here's some numbers:
17mm focal length
f/ 7.1 Aperture
6 seconds exposure, placed on a tripod
Thank you so much for enjoying my picture and hope to visit Tofino again soon!
