Nick, first of all: Congratulations! We got over 13 000 photos in this Mission and you are the Winner! How are you feeling now, is it like magic? 😉
Pretty stoked! It was an honor to have two of my photos chosen as finalists, and even more humbling to have one selected as a winner. There were a lot of amazing photos from very talented photographers.
The place in your photo is completely magical. Where is it?
This is on the Lewis River, near Moulton Falls, in southwestern Washington, North America.
Besides this you had several other many amazing shots in this Mission. Is hiking and exploring forests a passion of yours?
Thank you. Yes, hiking and exploring landscapes is a great hobby of mine, and is what originally got me into photography. I am very fortunate to live in a region surrounded by amazing natural settings, and the more I started hiking and exploring, the more I wanted to be able to capture those moments forever.
Are you shooting using your phone or do you use a DSLR camera?
Do you like editing your shots? What editing apps do you use the most?
We would love to know a little bit more about you. How old are you and what do you do in real life?
Last but not least, how long have you being Foaping and how did you fist hear about the app?
