Size : 20in x 60in (Unframed). Certified : Yes (Certificate of Authenticity). Everyone is at least somewhat familiar with the ancient Greek myth of King Midas, the man who received a blessing from the gods that allowed him to turn everything he touched to gold. Of course, in the story that blessing turns out to be more of a curse than anything else, as Midas couldnt control his golden touch and wound up turning even the food necessary to sustain him into hard, indigestible gold as well. However, people still dream of experiencing their own version of the Midas Touch, ever sure that if they were to receive that same power, theyd get it right. Midas Touch was captured as I passed a quiet winters afternoon admiring the Golden Gate Bridge from Californias own Baker Beach. It was late in the day and still very early on in the winter, but the golden California sun was still as bright and cheerful as ever. As it prepared to dip below the horizon, the light turned gorgeously golden as it kissed not only the bridge, but the surrounding landscape as well. For a few precious moments, everything truly appeared to be bathed in warm, rich, liquid gold like something out of a fairytale. It was impossible not to recall the story of King Midas.

There in the fading sunlight on that winter afternoon, something as fantastic and mythical as a golden touch really did seem like something that could actually happen. The fact that the sun was lighting up the Golden Gate Bridge seemed especially appropriate. Its already one of the most iconic and easily recognizable man made structures in the entire world a gracefully majestic connection between one stretch of land and another. There in the evening sunlight though, it seemed like even more a golden dream that was mere moments from coming true. Inspired by beauty, captured with passion Destin Sparks is an award-winning landscape photographer from Queensland, Australia.

Sparks harnesses the power of Film & Digital Medium format cameras to capture rare moments in time and beautiful landscapes from around the world in extremely high detail, resolution and color fidelity. His secret formula to making great photographs is capturing the perfect light and color straight in the camera rather than resorting to Photoshop or post digital processing - often requiring extreme patience and persistence.

The passion for photography and Mother Nature were uncovered in 2009 when a workplace bet among colleagues saw his hidden photographic talent emerge and despite being entirely self-taught Sparks is an accomplished landscape photographer with over 70 awards and accolades. "Theres just something about perfectly executed landscape photography that cant help but speak straight to the soul". As seen on The Weekend Today Edition. Destin Sparks and his works have been seen in publications such as Australian Traveller and National Geographic, also via live telecasts and media reviews. Examples include but are not limited to The Advertiser, Perth Now, National Nine Network, 4BC Radio, and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Hi Destin, I've always been a raving fan of your photography. I'm proud to say I own two of your Signature Edition pieces with plans to add a third. Your ability to capture some of Australia's unique landscapes at such opportune times always impresses me.

Je suis partie en Australie en automne 2014 pour 6 mois. De retour en France, le manque de lAustralie sest fait de plus en plus ressentir.

Je me suis donc offerte « Elysium ». Cette photo peut paraitre simple avec son palmier, mais elle représente tout à fait ce dont je me souviens de mon voyage, des palmiers, de magnifiques lever de soleil, une ambiance chaleureuse et des températures très douces. A chaque fois que je contemple cette photo, je me sens à nouveau là-bas.

Merci Destin pour ce merveilleux souvenir. Vous êtes absolument talentueux magnificence! I just wanted to say your photography is simply magical. Your images are impressive on screen but when my print arrived I was blown away by the quality.
