“Fluid Flow” | Praia da Ursa, Portugal
José Ramos ©
Image made in one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, acessible only through a steep descent, making it almost non-touristy (which is actually good). It’s called Praia da Ursa. Weather prediction said it would rain that day, but I felt like going there. The ocean was absolutely wild, with massive unpredictable waves. I got soaked to my waist, but the camera gear survived! As if it wasn’t enough, rain started falling heavily during the ascent, with strong winds and intense cold. Was it worth it? Absolutely! I have lots of images waiting to be edited and published from this session!
The light wasn’t colourful at all, but this is an image focused on shapes, scale and sense of flow.
