Spending a semester abroad was entirely inspirational and stimulating for me as an artist. I took the time away as an opportunity to broaden my perceptions. My camera came with me as I traversed much of Europe, capturing anything and everything I experienced with my eyes through the lens. This particular photograph was taken on the northwestern coast of Wales. After spending hours walking the Llwybr Mawddach Trail, the estuary I was traveling along opened up to Barmouth Bay and the Irish Sea. As I look at this image, the expansiveness of the ocean and sky coalescing on the horizon instills within me the same emotions I had while standing in that moment, reminding me that nothing but opportunity lies ahead.
