"Mesmerizing Bends" | Portimão (Portugal)

"Life will carry you through endless deflections, mesmerizing bends and dark obstacles. Do not resist the strength of the flow, as everyone reaches the finish line."

José Ramos © http:/

This is quite a tricky place to reach. After a 30 minute walk on a very narrow path, surrounded by extremely dense low vegetation, there was this magnificient "S" shaped water course, ready to be photographed under an intense sunset light.

"Layers" | Costa Vicentina, Portugal

"A cold and threatening end of afternon, where every path converges into the fearful sun, which silently dissapears beyond the horizon. The earth finally reveals itself in the low tide, stripping it's layers and stripping ourselves, showing us where we came from and where we are headed to, during the dance of the elements that announce the coming night."

"Colossus - Part II"

"Agains all odds, resisting through the passagem of time. Resilience in nature..."

José Ramos ©

Location: Ribeira da Janela, Madeira Island (Portugal)

This is another fantastic place in Madeira Island, where a small river course descends from the mountains and ends right here. This has created a unique pebble beach, which is adorned by two gigantic rock formations that persistently resist the strength of the strong waves. I went to this place on my 2nd day in Madeira, but light conditions were far from good. As I couldn't let this one pass, I returned there two days later, and it payed up.

"The Anima Watchtower" | Vila Nova de Milfontes, Portugal

"Inside each one of us, the true and the false, the watcher and the illusion, the now and the past, constantly battling for real existence."

José Ramos ©

Photo made in one of the rocky beaches of Vila Nova de Milfontes, after a one hour walk on extremely slippery rocks. Once more, the return in total darkness was even more difficult, but always joined by that usual smile of an amazing afternoon contemplating the wonders of nature.

Exposure: 30 seconds
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 200
Filters: Hitech 3 stop ND grad; Hitech 4 stop ND
Tripod, remote shutter release.

"The Pinnacle" | Sintra, Portugal

José Ramos ©

Reaching for new grounds, new opportunities, new cycles. Rather than struggling for the peak, and running out of oxygen amidst the rush, perhaps it's better to sit and just contemplate, learning its ways and its mysteries, until your eyes and soul can be at peace with it, and finally be it.

Image info:

My first trip to the amazing and fortunately difficult to reach Praia da Ursa. This place has been voted by a renown magazine as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and I have to agree. Even though the weather wasn't good at all for photography, this place just left me astounded with it's sheer energy and power. Not easy at all to shoot this place under harsh light conditions, so I had to resort to different angles, and play with the available light. This was a tricky image to properly expose, but the ND filters made it possible.

Exposure: 2 seconds
Aperture: f9.5
ISO: 200

"Road to Heaven" | Madeira Island (Portugal)

One of the most epic afternoons ever, walking among the clouds and amidst the elements. This was the true feeling of being at one with everything, all at once...

Sacred place, sacred light, beyond all things mundane, absolutely making so much perfect sense.

Need to return, fast...

José Ramos ©

One of those few photos where the real difficulty was to process it to make it look less surreal, as the light was absolutely wicked on that scene.

It had to be in Madeira Island!

Had to use a 4 stop ND Grad filter to be able to hold the bright sky and make it possible with just one exposure.

Great news again! I have been featured once more on the cover of Photography Week's current issue! This time the chosen image was "Soul Searching", captured some years ago with a Pentax K10d. The image is also shown in greater detail, with technical info, on the inside of the magazine. Hope you like it!

Photographer - Landscape/Nature Photography | Doctor in Psychiatry
My name is José Ramos and I'm a 29 year old nature/landscape photographer, and a doctor (in the field of Psychiatry), from Portugal.

I've developed an increasing interest in photography over the last years, and the passion grew so strong that this is the art I've chosen to express myself, as well as pay hommage to the beauty and power of the world which surrounds us.

Currently dividing my professional time between medicine and photography, I'm constantly struggling to find time to develop my skills in both areas. So far, with passion, this has been possible, at the expense of sleeping hours, but it always pays off in the end.

The main goal with my images is to depict and create my own interpretation of what surrounds us, sharing my vision in the form of photography.
