It all started when I had this crazy-person idea to precariously lean over a large boulder in about a foot and a half of rapids. I continued the good ideas by setting up my tripod in a very questionably safe way. The tripod was basically submerged, so at that point it was more of a subpod. I had the camera a few inches from the water. Between each shot, it was necessary to wipe the lens front. I drenched all my microfiber cloths in a matter of minutes.

Ok, enough of my dramatics. I worked pretty hard to get a clean foreground composition here at the famous Proxy Falls.

Thanks for looking.

New on 500px : Legacy of the Brave by PedroQuintela1 by PedroQuintela1

This image has a curious story. Some weeks ago a friend of mine told me that he liked my gallery, but my approach is always too classic. I answered that I’m a classic guy, always be and always will. Nevertheless, that idea didn’t left my mind, so when I visited this 10th century castle, in Marvão, I had the chance.
Part of my life has been devoted to History, now imagine my feelings when it connects to one of the other things that makes me tick…
So when I saw this path, make the composition mentally and went for it. Hope you like the final output. I just waited for the proper clouds to be over this area. Used also a CPL, the wide angle lenses do create this perspective and give depth to the composition.
This also reminded me what Henry Miller once said: “one’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things”.

Thanks for sharing, commenting, voting and support me. You nourish my dreams that it’s priceless.

New on 500px : Monsoons and sunsets by PeteReynolds4 by PeteReynolds4

Anyone who has been to Nang Thong Beach recently will have walked past this lump of driftwood, as soon as I saw it i knew my 16-35mm would be sitting about 1m away from it at sunset.

I went to this location for 6 nights waiting to get this shot, I just managed to get all my camera gear into the bag before this monsoon hit with a vengeance!
