Our #Travel2019 Heroes Corinna Jüptner & Marcus Jasak (aka @kveikjan)

Our winning photo was taken on the Norwegian island of Senja, right next to mountain Segla, during our six-week road trip through Northern Norway. In it you can see Corinna standing in front of Segla during the golden hour. It was photographed with a DJI Mavic Pro. During this road trip we experienced all kinds of weather conditions which could often change every 5 to 10 minutes. We are very happy to be join Agora’s family of Heroes and would like to thank everyone who voted for us!”

Corinna & Marcus’ winning #Travel2019 photo – On the edge

The guest judges for this Contest have been travel photographers Henry Do & David Rule

We called upon #Light2019 Hero Henry Do (@henry_do) and travel photographer David Rule to lend the Community a hand with choosing the Hero! Find out why they both chose this winning photo! 👇

Henry Do’s selection criteria: “I chose @kveikjan’s images as it shows a massive landscape with beautiful soft light from what I think is Norway. It has good elements & great perspective to be awarded the 1st place winner.

David Rule’s selection criteria: “I’ve selected @kveikjan’s photo because it gives such epic scale of the place. It truly emphasizes the landscape and is also very well-edited. Congratulations!”

On behalf of the entire AGORA Team, congratulations to Corinna & Marcus for becoming the Hero! 👏🎉
