"Initiation"

I have been keeping this photo on wait to publish it today, as a much needed inner way to symbolize the ritual of passage to the New Year. The Initiation Well of the mysterious Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra is one of the most majestic achievements of Men in symbolizing the transition from darkness to enlightenment. To me this has been a tortuous and extremely intense year, filled with so many ups and downs, frantically climbing steps and running out of breath on so many occasions. I have not refused any of the challenges that crossed my path, and in all honesty this is the way that life should be: a constant challenge, difficult but memorable, always filled with the most important thing - sense of meaning. I think this is the only way to reach up there.

Wish you both a challenging and fantastic 2017, above all filled with meaning!

This time it was Iceland's amazing and alien-like Hverir geothermal area being featured on Photography Week, the world's best selling digital photography magazine. :-)

To help soothe the fact that I've been totally knocked out by a virus for the last two days, with almost constant fever, I got the news that the new Cidade 21 lifestyle magazine has been published, featuring one of my images on the cover, as well as a selected portfolio on the inside. It will be available throughout the country in selected newsstands.

Following a request from a photography magazine, I decided to do a remake of my photo "The Doubt". It's without a doubt one of my most successful photos ever, but the original quality wasn't good enough for extremely large prints, due to some shake in the pier while I was doing the long exposure. As the photo I took next had a similar composition and much better fine detail I decided to update the image.

"Arrival"

A remarkable moment, filled with blossoming elements all over this icelandic landscape, from the midnight warm
clouds to the endless stream of water and resilient vegetation.

Location: Seljalandfoss, Iceland 2016

This image was made right after I arrived to the Seljalandfoss parking space, during the June 2016 trip. The clouds were warming up before midnight, and I got the usual impulse of going straight to the waterfall base and shoot from there. All of a sudden this purplish red cloud starts coming right from behind the waterfall and so I instinctively decided I had to capture it, trying a new visual approach for this iconic spot. Using a vibrant plant in the foreground, the river stream as guiding line and mirroring the cloud in the water, this is the final result.

Technical info:
This image wouldn't have been possible without going ultra-uber-wide with the Sony 10-18mm APS-C lens at 13mm on a
full frame!

The Shutyouraperture website invited me to write a feature about my Iceland portfolio. I've selected 16 of my favorite images and wrote about how I ended up discovering this stunning country.

And you, when will you visit Iceland?!

Here's the second part of the result of my collaboration with Iceland Mini Campers, during my 2016 Iceland Photo-Trip. They are a small company focused on customer service, with a great mini camper lineup and excellent prices. Their service was flawless and everything went smoothly during the trip. The owners are not only very nice, but also show great musical taste and playing ability!

Hope you like the images!

"Scar Healing"

This is the extraterrestrial Hverir geothermal area in Iceland, where the scars on the surface of Earth, joined by the steaming hot sulphur smokes and boiling muds, show us that our planet is very much alive and constantly renovating itself.

This photo was shot during sunrise at 2am in June 2016, right after a fantastic midnight sun display in the near area of the Krafla Volcano. This was probably the best light display of the whole trip, with non stop intense warm light during 4 hours. The original plan for that day was to shoot the west side of the Dettifoss waterfall, but I was unfortunately surprised by a blocked staircase to the shooting spots, as the place was still filled with dangerous slippery ice near the borders. There was no internet on the spot to check the cloud cover forecast and redo the shooting plan, so I rushed to return to the Ring Road. As this was my third visit to the country, I knew that the Krafla volcanno crater and the Hverir Geothermal area were near, so there were the chosen spots for that day. As you can guess, I definitely do not regret this choice!

As it would become usual on these midnight sun sessions, there was a total of 4 persons on the spot between sunset and sunrise, in a place that is usually crowded with dozens (hundreds?) of visitors.

This is my first published photo made with the Sony 10-18mm APS-C lens using a full frame sensor, at 13mm. Ultra-wide lens with great sharpness and 100mm filter compatibility, which I used about 70% of the time in Iceland!

Story
Tagline
Photographer - Landscape/Nature Photography | Doctor in Psychiatry
Introduction
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.
