Inspiration
The inspiration to make this piece was really the photograph itself. I hadn't seen this photo in a long time; I was going through an old album one day and realized this was a great shot with which to practice editing colour dynamics and typography. Well I did more than practice, if I may say so myself :bow: – this was, in my opinion, the first [good] typography piece that I made.

The phrase "the horizon is waiting" means a lot to me because it speaks of wanderlust, exploration and vast potential. I love wide open spaces, I love the sky and wherever the wind can take me.


Technique
I took this photo absurdly early in the morning in Gaspé, Québec (same morning as Apollo's realm). My favourite thing about the sky's composition that morning was the contrasting colours depending on how close to the horizon you look.

I like this shot because it reaches all the way down the bay towards the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Atlantic Ocean. When I look at it I feel like I'm going to fall headfirst into the world.

That's beautiful. The colors look great, the angle is lovely, and the depth is really good as well. I'm not sure the water mark appeals to me, but the message is really nice. :la:

I really love that sky. Nature is so beautiful.
