"Colossus" | Madeira Island, Ribeira da Janela

Against all odds, resisting through the passagem of time. Resilience in Nature...

José Ramos © Follow me on facebook for updates - www.facebook.com/joseramosphot…

This is another fantastic place in Madeira Island, called Ribeira da Janela, where a water 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 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.

Technical data:
Exposure: 30 seconds
Aperture: f9.5
ISO: 100
Tripod, remote shutter
Manual focus
7 stop ProStop IRND filter (Hitech), 4 stop soft ND Grad (Hitech)

the mist or water in this coupled with the clouds in the sky gives this an eternal feel like nothing has or will ever change this scenery ;)

Slight curve adjustment and color balance adjustment. Local contrast enhancement (unsharp mask with large radius) and some final dodge/burning.
