As Salinas Naturais de Rio Maior, também conhecidas como Salinas da Fonte da Bica, estão situadas no sopé da Serra dos Candeeiros, a três quilómetros de Rio Maior, em Portugal.
São compartimentos – talhos - feitos de cimento ou de pedra, de tamanho variado e pouco fundos, para onde, por regueiras, é conduzida a água salgada que se tira de um poço.
Presentemente, a água é elevada por meio de um motor e distribuída segundo um sistema conjuntamente aceite e respeitado (nem sempre) por todos os proprietários. Os esgoteiros, as eiras e as casas de madeira para armazenagem do sal, completam o conjunto do que é denominado Marinhas de Sal de Rio Maior.
Uma mina de sal-gema, muito extensa e profunda, segundo os técnicos, atravessada por uma corrente subterrânea que alimenta um poço, faz com que a água dele extraída seja salgada, sete vezes mais salgada que a do mar. Da sua exposição ao sol e ao vento e consequente evaporação da água obtêm-se o sal, depositado no fundo dos talhos e que depois é colocado em montes, em forma de pirâmides, para secar até ser recolhido.
O processo é rudimentar e semelhante ao usado nas salinas da beira-mar. Só há diferença no vale pitoresco que as rodeia, no poço, no estilo próprio dos marinheiros (como são conhecidos os homens que trabalham nas salinas), nas casas de madeira e no ar campestre que se respira.

Gates of the Valley, Yosemite National Park, California

A little water, a little weather, and those gleaming granite cliffs. Natural perfection.

Learn to Fly - Canyonlands, UT

I remember this morning well.  I had hiked to the Delicate Arch the previous evening for the sunset and the plan was to wake up early and get out to Mesa Arch for the sunrise.  Mother Nature had other plans.  I awoke to rainfall and stormy skies instead.  But, knowing full well how weather can change, I hopped into the Pathfinder and headed out into Canyonlands from my hotel in Moab.  Along the entire drive I had nothing but rain... torrential rain.  Photographing the Mesa Arch sunrise was obviously not in the cards.  Instead, I had the entire park virtually all to myself and I was able to spend the morning photographing the most awesome weather and storm clouds I have ever seen.  I knew there was something for me that morning.  There's always something to photograph whether the sun is out or not.  I must say, it was a rather bizaar feeling having absolutely nobody around for what seemed like hours as I drove around in Canyonlands.  The best time of day for photography and nobody is there.  Awesome sauce.

Moral of the story is to get out there and shoot even in stormy weather.

East Coast of O’ahu from Makapu’u Lookout (Hawaii)

Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed: http://goo.gl/btfXk4

I took this photo while in Hawaii at the end of the January. That was the day when the rain started at least 20 times. Sometimes it was just couple of minutes and a few drops of the water but when I reached the Makapu’u area of the O’ahu it was practically  a storm with the heavy wind.

I spent at least 40min in the car at Makapu’u Lookout parking waiting for the rain to stop. It was totally worth it.

SHOOTING & PROCESSING

Because of the spots of the really bright spots and some areas of the dark clouds I decided to shoot for HDR, taking 3 bracketed shots (-1, 0, +1) on a tripod.

For the processing, I used Lightroom HDR based workflow. I outlined this technique in my latest tutorial “Lightroom HDR – Natural Looking HDR In Lightroom”.

After I produced HDR image I used a Lightroom preset based workflow, using Golden Gate present from my Landscapes Collection (you can always download free lightroom presets).
