“Another artwork was given an honourable mention as a final point. And a heartfelt thanks for winning the first prize in 2023 aboard the opulent Red Sea Aggressor III, “Mr. Dawson continued writing.

According to Mr. Dawson, “When I take pictures, I want to evoke the sensation of “I wish I was there.” That is my adage.”
