A personal favorite of mine from many years ago. I captured this scene in 2008 on an amazing spring day along the False Bay coastline. I had just returned from a 3 day trip to the Cedarberg and I was absolutely exhausted. The clouds looked amazing over False Bay so I headed out to a spot I had scouted a few weeks earlier. The light played along and it turned out to be an amazing sunset.

Unluckily I was still shooting with a 40D and a Sigma 10-20mm so despite it being perfectly in focus, there's little detail for printing compared to a full frame image.

The Best landscape photographs are mostly taken in the so called 'golden hour' around sunset and sunrise, but every so often the skies pull out their absolute best cards and create scenes like these in the early afternoon. Such was the case on this March afternoon on the Northern rim of the Fish River Canyon.

"The Natural Networks - Part II" | Vila Nova de Milfontes, Portugal

"Entangled in the endless stream of thoughts, mirrored by the natural networks of the Earth, anger subsides and serenity finally prevails."

José Ramos ©

Follow me on Facebook - www.facebook.com/joseramosphot...

Shot during the last day of a wonderful vacation in Vila Nova de Milfontes, in September 2012. Seven days filled with light seeking and wild beaches. This specific beach wasn't chosen until the last day, when Nature greeted us with a visual feast that I still can remember as if it happened yesterday. The light acted as a magnet during that afternoon end, and dozens of people rushed to see the gorgeous sunset. I feel blessed for having witnessed this. Needless to say that this is one of the most fantastic beaches I've ever visited.

Afternoon sunlight slips in from the West, illuminating a fairy circles while a growing storm cell approaches from the East

Virtually nothing is known about these mysterious circles as you'll find on Wikipedia - "Fairy circles are enigmatic barren patches, typically found in the grasslands of the western part of southern Africa.

They are most prolific in Namibia, but are also present in Angola and South Africa.[1] These fairy circles consist of round areas barren of vegetation; as yet there is no clear picture as to how they are formed, although scientists are researching the matter. One theory suggests termites as the creator of these circles, but recent studies have stated that there is no evidence termites would cause this phenomenon. In the oral myths of Himba people these barren patches are said to have been caused by the gods and/or spirits and natural divinities.

Studies done by South African scientists shows that these circles are under continuous development. They grow in diameter, expanding to as large as 9 m in diameter, where they mature and "die", filled in by invasive grasses"

Myself and :iconshem-inja: just got back from a 5 day trip to the Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga. The weather was mostly overcast, but it produced some dramatic conditions. This is the world's 3rd largest canyon after the Grand Canyon in the U.S and the Fish River Canyon in Namibia.

I leave on Friday for the Kalahari and the plan was supposed to be Kalahari-Richtersveld-Namibia, but there has been an abnormal amount of rain in the Nam so I'm skipping the Richtersveld and going directly to Namibia!

I'll keep you updated as the trip goes along!

Milford Sound
New Zealand

Dylan and I recently came back from a 3-week trip to New Zealand's South Island. It was our first real holiday since Charlotte arrived and we were quite looking forward to it. I was a bit nervous about travelling with an 8-month old baby, but she turned out to be absolutely fantastic as we dragged her out for sunrise and sunset almost everyday.

On this night Dylan was not with us as he did an overnight trek on the Routeburn Track. It had been raining all day until suddenly at 4pm it ceased. The rain caused a multitude of small waterfalls to magically appear, cascading off the mountains around us. I was trying to feed Charlotte dinner in our accommodation and watching the sky very closely. As soon as she finished I rushed out with her and tried to capture what was left of the light - seems that I misjudged how long it takes to get a child fed, strapped into a carrier, covered with mesh (so sandflies don't bite her) and then lugging all the photographic gear to the right location.

Thankfully there was just enough interesting clouds catching the light to make my efforts worthwhile. Bowen Falls on the right hand side of the image is not normally so visible but there was so much water from the rain it was roaring.

Thanks to my hubby for helping me process the image!

Location

If you're ever wondered how wide the Amazon river actually is, then have a look at how far away the opposite bank is on this photo.
Technically speaking, this isn't actually the River Amazon. This is the Rio Negro which comes down from the North. Around 12 km down river from this spot it meets the Rio Solimões, a river which carries with it the melt water of the Andes and starts in Peru. The Peruvians actually call this river the Amazon, but to Brazilians the Amazon river doesn't start until it meets the Rio Negra, the river in this photograph.

When the two rivers meet, their different colours (the Negro is black and the Solimões a muddy brown) run side by side before mixing. It's a strange sight which occurs because there is a 6ºc difference in temperature between the two rivers. Holding your hand in the water as you cross across the two different flows is a really strange experience.

This shot was taken from a floating pier at the beach (there are lots of beaches on the Amazon) called Ponta Negra, a suburb to the west of Manaus.

We arrived here in the afternoon and had to catch our boat deeper into the rainforest from this pier at 6am. During the evening I decided to have a go at taking a shot of the sunset, and this is the result.

Technique

The hardest part of making this image was the fact that the pier was floating, so every disturbance in the water rocked the pier up and down, blurring the far bank.
I had to wait until there were no boats passing to get the shot, and by this time the sun had dipped below the horizon.

I was fascinated by the beautiful glowing blue of this rope, and the flaking paint on the wooden planks of the pier, so to focus the eyes on them I chose a long exposure which would smooth out the water and blur the sky, giving the foreground textures more prominence in the image.

I wanted an exposure of around 2 minutes, and used a 9 stop filter to enable me to get that with the camera's aperture at f13.

The camera was secured on a tripod low to the pier to bring the foreground as close to the lens as possible, and I used two 3 stop neutral density graduated filters placed along the horizon to hold the sky back and stop it from burning out.

All of the composition, focusing and alignment of the ND grads had to be done first, before I added the ND400 9 stop filter, as it's impossible to see through the viewfinder with this on the camera.

I then used a cable release to open the shutter, and timed 2 minutes using my watch while sitting very still as any movement would have disturbed the pier.
With this filter, the camera does tend to underexpose and I wanted to give it a little more time, but there was a boat approaching and I didn't want the waves it created to disturb the pier. The boat is actually within the frame of this shot, but it was moving fast enough so that it didn't record in the exposure.
I closed the shutter a few seconds before the waves started to rock the pier.

The sun sets so quickly at this latitude that I knew I would only get one chance at such a long exposure...I was lucky that everything worked first time.

Post Processing

Almost nothing has been done to this shot and it's pretty much as it came out of camera on the RAW file. The blue of the rope really was that saturated.
The image was a little noisy in the shadows, so I ran it once through Neat Image (an amazing little plug-in) and used the healing brush to remove a few dust spots on the sensor.

The image was then resized, sharpened a little and then I added the frame and title before converting to JPEG and saving it.

Almost certainly one of the most photographed pieces of landscape in the British Isles, it's almost blasphemy to go to Skye and NOT attempt to photograph the Old Man Of Storr in the north of the island.

It's a dawn location, the view here is taken looking south east across the south of the Isle of Skye (you can see the peaks of the Cuillins in the distance) with the mainland just visible to the left and the isle of Raasay between.
This however, isn't a dawn shot. I took this in the middle of the afternoon, when I was familiarizing myself with the location and picking out a spot to shoot from for the following morning. Fortunately, I took my time and got a couple of decent shots, because as it turned out, when I climbed up there before dawn the following day, in the cold and the wind and the rain and the mist, I couldn't actually see the Storr because it was so cloudy. I waited two hours for the sun to rise, but it never broke through the cloud, and all I got for my trouble was the shot below



So, as it turned out, this shot, taken in crappy light in the middle of the afternoon, was the only shot I actually got of the place. Fortunately, it's one of the very few locations which still photographs pretty well even in the aforementioned crappy mid-afternoon light...

To give an idea of scale, there are probably 20 or 30 hikers in this shot walking around the base of the rocks, and my wife is actually sitting on a rock looking out over the small lake you can see on the bottom left of the picture. The green smudge is a pine plantation you have to walk up through to get to the location. It's not a particularly hard walk in the day, but alone in the dark and mist before dawn, it's pretty eerie.

I never did get to see it bathed in the glow of first light at sunrise, but even so, it's one of those places that really does take your breath away....even in crappy weather.
