The goal is always to be different, right?
For me it is. Sure I visit popular locations, who doesn't? The key is when you get there to recognize what everyone else is doing and has done and make a conscious choice to be different.
Be yourself! The world has enough people out there trying to be someone else. Go be yourself and add some real value to this planet!
When I shot this location the most important thing for me was to shoot it vertically. I have never really seen it photographed in such a way due to the way the mountains fill the skyline horizontally. The other was to really make a connection, I wanted to feel this shot with everything in me when I looked at it. In doing this I knew that I could walk away with a shot that was not only different but one that would be meaningful to others.
