"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!

"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.

José Ramos © http://www.joseramos.com

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!
Sony a7R + Sony 10-18mm f4 at 13mm
Exposure: 2 seconds

ISO: 50

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.

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!
