Andrew Buchanan’s Award Winning Shot
Congratulations to FoundFolios member Andrew Buchanan for taking third place in the Landscape category for the 2014 APA National Awards.
The award winning snap seen above was taken from a helicopter flying several hundred feet above the Skagit River Valley in north Washington state. “The rivulets, channels, and pools of the mud flats resembled the surface of a brain, or something examined under a microscope slide, rather than a vast expanse of silty mud and brackish water,” comments Buchanan, who specializes in architectural, interior, landscape and aerial photography.
“This is a great example of how eye-opening, even misleading, the literal world can look when stripped to its basic, two-dimensional forms, but also of how interesting it can be to feature a pretty mundane subject in a very graphic and unusual way.
