I won the Second Place for National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year 2018, for CITIES category!!!!
This is a dream come true!!!!
Teotihuacan means ‘the place where the gods were created,’ and that’s the exact feeling visitors have when they walk along the Avenue of the Dead at this Mexican archaeological site.
This pyramid was dedicated to the god of Sun, and I found it mesmerizing how the rising sun in the picture conquered just half the image, while the other half is in the shadows.
I have always loved archaeology and ancient civilizations, so I couldn’t wait to visit Mexico and explore the remains of the pre-Columbian civilization.
I planned my visit to Teotihuacan at sunrise, to get a combination of golden sunlight, play of shadows, and few crowds around.
I flew my drone to see if the image I had in my mind was really out there:luckily for me, this frame was just waiting for my camera!
Here some media coverage!
