"The Forgotten Lands"

When the landscape overwhelms the senses with awe, something grows on the inside that cannot be put into words. Can you?

Location: Kerlingarfjoll, Icelandic Highlands

After being in Iceland for three times, the fourth trip had to include the highlands. With the help of the awesome RVRental's 4WD Toyota Hilux, I finally had the freedom I needed to meet the wonders of this sparsely visited part of Iceland. The Kerlingarfjoll mountains were one of the chosen destinations, following advice by my friends Arnar Guðjónsson and Alexander Otto, and it was definitely a great tip!

After travelling through endless barren dry landscapes, typical of most of the Icelandic Highlands, all of a sudden you encounter a group of luxurious orange/red volanic rhyolite mountains, with numerous hot springs painting the soil with green, yellow and red tones. This is both a hiking and photographic mecca, with so many possible angles to explore. It's quite interesting to think that a century ago this area was rarely visited, as people used to think it was too remote and filled with outlaws and possibly... trolls!

On the bottom left of the image, that's right, it's a photographer also shooting the scene, namely my dear companion Adriana!

Technical info:
Sony a7R + Venus Laowa 12mm f2.8
Aperture: f/11
Exposure: 30 seconds
Manual Focus
Filters: 7 stops Full ND (Nisi), 4 stops Medium Grad (Nisi)

"Echoes" | Finally here's my first simple edited video made with the Dji Spark drone, shot in the banks of River Arade, near Portimão (Algarve, Portugal).

The learning curve for properly flying a drone is much steeper than I ever thought, and video editing is a whole different beast from photo editing, with lots of interface idiosyncrasies, making me almost going mad while trying to process the footage.

Since I bought the drone, these last weeks have been quite crazy, learning the ins and outs of the craft, with too little spare time available. For the next week I just need to do some further tests, hoping that the Spark, and specially its pilot, will be able to deliver the shots on Iceland in September.

Thanks to HP Modelismo for the support!

"Altar of the Seas"

This is Capela do Senhor da Pedra, set in a truly remarkable place, where Men has worshiped deities over the millenia, from Pagan Gods to Christian symbols, asking for protection and inspiration. In a tragical day when Portugal is being ravaged by fires, with one of the highest casualty counts in our history, it makes sense to reflect on the delicate and sometimes overwhelming relationship between Men and Nature. The active conscience that one lives in a fully dynamic, unpredictable and ever changing ecossystem, channels our inner strength towards the notion that every single element on Earth depends on everything else which lies around.

Altars, offerings, prayers, sacrifices, thoughts, reflections and gestures can and should be part of our sacred relationship with Nature, as long as it's done with the conscience that Nature doesn't exist to serve and protect us, but rather to accomodate our existence in a mutual exchange that should be filled with respect and reverence...

Aperture: f9
Exposure: 1/6 seconds
