Mists and waters

Published June 27th, 2011

In January of this year, we made a return visit after a 5 year absence to the island of Madeira in the Atlantic ocean. Madeira is a remarkable place in terms of landscape photography, but extremely challenging to photograph. The island itself sits atop a giant shield volcano, fortunately it hasn't erupted for thousands of years! Do a search for photographs, and you'll come across a multitude of typical tourist shots. So, the challenge was to make some fine art photographs that captured some of the remarkable drama of the Madeiran landscape. The result is a portfolio I've called Névoa da água (Mists and waters). The image concentrate on the north (wet) coast of the island and some of the 1800m high peaks, both of which give an array of atmospheric and lighting conditions conducive to black and white photography.

The full portfolio is visible on my website: Silver Expressions
