#BVSBlue Photo Contest Winner

Congratulations to Kirsten Quist for capturing this beautiful blue celestial scene! This discovery from New Zealand’s Cape Campbell in this winning entry of our #BVSBlue Photo Contest. Congrats, Kirsten—you’re going to Crete for a photo clinic with Trover Ambassador Brendan van Son!

Kirsten Quist‘s winning #BVSBlue discovery from Cape Campbell, New Zealand.

You’ll have to get up early (or go to bed late) to capture the Milky Way in its luminous wonder. Kirsten shared her experience of snapping this starry night.

After a 2:15AM start, a couple hours of driving through fields of cattle and abandoned sheds, and finally a short walk, I arrived at the private entrance (with permission of course) to Cape Campbell lighthouse. I was awarded with a stunning night sky and a peaceful stargazing experience, only interrupted by a beautiful sunrise.

Thanks, Kirsten! Brendan and the Trover team loved the thoughtful description and dramatic perspective of this travel-worthy find. Follow Kirsten on Trover to see more of her impressive discoveries and find out where she heads next!

Competition was fierce for the coveted spot in Brendan’s photo clinic and we were blown away by the stunning discoveries from the Trover community! Honorable Mentions and high fives to Dalibor Brlek for this colorful solar installation from Croatia, to Tim Durtschi for his instant adrenaline rush from Crater Lake, and to Dennis Skyum for his rail station rainbow from Sweden.
