The shot was taken in September 2020, after four attempts in three years, because the river is wild and we can only access the spot a few weeks every year. After the first failed attempt, I came back alone and took pictures of the site from all angles, when I saw this reflection in the water I knew that I had to put myself in this place to shoot. For a better reflection, we put a piece of wood in the canal with stop foam. The photo was taken in total respect of the site.
The wait is over and we can finally share the first new images of this year's Red Bull Illume Image Quest! Every week, we announce the semi-finalists of a different category, so stay tuned for more mind-blowing images.
