Sunrise at Serra do Rio do Rastro.

These mountains were formed during the Permian Age.
Where Africa once stood, 250 millions years ago.

Most of this territory remains wild and unexplored.
On a clear day, you can see the ocean, just 60km ahead.
On the other side of it, Africa now stands some 6000km away.

Santa Catarina, Brazil.
Altitude approx. 1400m.

Enjoy and thank you for the support! :thanks:

Little over a month ago, I was invited by DeviantArt, in a partnership with SONY, to be part of a collaborative project. It involved four Deviants and was centered on the theme "Capturing Change". That would mean taking a SONY Alpha mirrorless camera out on assignment to document how a city has changed and how its inhabitants have changed with it.

I loved being part of this and still can't quite believe it is real :la:

Miguel Santos
:iconmiguel-santos: Miguel-Santos
São Joaquim, Brazil
The most experience photographer of the group, Miguel has been a photographer for over 15 years, starting with a film camera and then moving to digital five years later. With the goal of featuring the past, present, and future of Brazil in this project, he traveled to smaller and lesser-known cities to capture the beauty and the chaos withi


One of the sub-themes I explored was Nature vs. City. This was the first shot I chose to represent that theme.

The ocean city lies beyond the waves. For a moment I thought, who's in command here? Nature or the City?

Balneário Camboriú.
Santa Catarina, Brazil


THE SHOOT:

I knew Balneário Camboriú would be a great subjet to photograph. The city grew rapidly and defies all of Nature's logic. Dozens upon dozens of skyscrapers overshadow this beautiful paradise. I wanted to capture an angle which shows how awkward -- and yet still beautiful -- an urban landscape such as this can be.
I went into the water, shot handheld and as close to the ground as possible. The a7RII camera and the 28mm lens both have great stabilization features which allowed me to quickly shoot at a smaller aperture, using the tilted screen with the level indicator to move around while keeping the right horizontal balance.
In post-processing, I was happy to find everything in the background had a sharp focus and I could get this deep contrast in black and white, while preserving a huge amount of details.

Enjoy and share a thought in the comments!

Any questions about the camera, don't hesitate to ask.

HD Wallpaper available for some points. Thanks.

We are Children of the Earth, raised by Trees.


I selected 14 of my works for a calendar.
The theme is Nature and our relationship with it.
So, I came up with this idea of us being raised by trees.
And we were, essentially! :)

Seems to me we still have so much to learn from them.

Anyway, I hope you like the calendar.
To purchase, find it on a button the right, under 'Art Gifts'.

Have a look at my 2014 copy here: sta.sh/02177o55g7yk

If you're buying it, thank you for the support.
