Believe it or not, today’s interesting photo is not ripped straight from a Disney film. Rather, critically acclaimed photographer Alex Nye used his craft to turn one of the most important moments of his life into something downright magical:
Reaching the peak of California’s Grass Mountain is no small feat, as the path quickly becomes steep and unruly. One can only imagine that the trek becomes even more challenging when clad in khakis and a button-down, towing along a camera and tripod. However, those willing to make the journey are rewarded with a commanding view of the sprawling Santa Ynez Valley. During a small window in spring, the 4.5 mile trail comes alive with vibrant poppies and lupine in bloom.
Under the guise of setting up for a timelapse landscape, Nye had his fiancee fooled that he was up to business as usual when he positioned his DSLR several yards away. So, when he did get down on one knee and present a ring amidst the beautiful scenery, the unsuspecting woman was as speechless as any other bride-to-be.
We wish the happy couple all the best in the years to come! Thanks to Nye’s precise planning and artistic prowess, this scene is one that we’re sure the two will treasure for a lifetime.
