Epson Nov. 11 introduced that the Epson Electronic Artwork Prize at this year’s Epson International Pano Awards was received by Manish Mamtani.
Mamtani, an avid nature photographer who has travelled widely throughout the exotic locations and focuses on landscapes that replicate the magnificence of character, won the award and $1,000 money for his perform, Dragon Eye.
“This image was taken throughout just one of my current outings to Iceland and it shows the best-down check out of an emerald geothermal pool in the highlands. Right after savoring a wonderful sunset on 1 of these days, I made the decision to carry on driving to this geothermal space which was a pair of hrs absent,” Mamtani defined about the qualifications to Dragon Eye. “In July, the sunshine goes underneath the horizon only for a few of hours so the golden hour is normally much lengthier followed by the blue hour of twilight.”
The generate was stunning with no one particular and practically nothing all-around but the large and rugged landscape of the Icelandic highlands, the information release claimed.
“I attained this geothermal location someday just before dawn. Though my first strategy was to get there and relaxation for some time, the early morning golden light-weight tempted me to fly my drone and discover the space first,” additional Mamtani.
“I am so glad I decided to do that mainly because the steam from the geysers, blended with the lovely morning gentle, was making a great canvas for awesome drone shots,” he explained. “I stumbled throughout this pool although checking out the place and the early morning light was hitting it at all the suitable destinations and highlighting not just the emerald shade of the pool, but also the gazillion very little streams that had been coming out of it. To me, it appeared as however I was looking at the eye of a dragon – it was amazing and demonstrates the true splendor of this place.”
Mamtani’s motto is to showcase the unseen splendor of character via his aerial photography. He also specializes in landscapes, night, astro and infrared pictures, the release famous.
