Plus Post WEEK 12      #GScapes #GscapesAud  

Something I wanted to create definitely before the end of the year:
To finish this mentorship! Storytelling Landscape Photography  with +Sairam Sundaresan 

My graduation image and Final Plus Post

After all we have learned in this 12 weeks Program I had my bag full of knowledge which I have acquired during this time! I was excited to accomplish my masterpiece, but I have also put myself under massive pressure. I couldn’t finish in time before our holiday trip to USA. So I thought what can happen to me better, than a trip to a country with so many outstanding landscapes, after this Storytelling Landscape Photography time. I was sure that I will find the perfect landscape to accomplish my masterpiece. And so it was! Now my only challenge was to decide which one to choose! I can tell you, that was a challenge and I'm still not sure which image I like best, because I love them all!! So I decided finally for this one, not because it is spectacular, but because I tried something I am completely unfamiliar with, doing a long exposure shot. At that day we had a ride north from Cayucos along the Pacific Highway in California to watch the elephant seals. We spend a nice day along the coast and then stopped on our way back at this beach, because I planned to shoot a sunset with rocks in my composition. I managed a couple of very nice shots, but finally after the sun has set, it was a magical mood in the way the water of the waves flowed again and again over the rocks. So I decided to try long exposure. After a couple trying, I succeeded this one.  It has actually been the last try and the only one with this lonely seagull standing there. I was so happy about it!
It was the end of a wonderful day, so this image is for the end of this wonderful mentorship, at the end of this Year!
