Dark Hedges

    Marco Calandra

During my photo-trip in Northern Ireland I had the opportunity to visit such amazing locations as Giant's causeway and Dark Hedges. This photo, taken at Dark Hedges, shows the magical scenery that has been chosen as one of the beautiful locations for the TV series Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, this place, due to the popular series, has become very crowded and has lost most of the atmosphere.

Marco Calandra was born on 11th December 1989 in Gothenburg (Sweden). In the 2014 he wrote the thesis on "The Unreality of the photography", achieving the highest grade. In the same year he decided to continue the last two-year in specialization of Photography and finish his studies with a complete degree . In the 2015, after having used and experienced with the APS-C, he decided to move to the next level by purchasing a Full Frame. His academic career ended in 2017, by writing a thesis named "The silent landscapes" achieving the highest grade.
