André Gomez standing in front of the famous wave at Nazare on a small day at sunset. While Nazare is known for the giant waves that show up once or twice a winter most of the time it looks like this in winter--decent size waves for a normal surf break but nothing to write home about at this moment. On this evening the sunset reflected in the water was pretty spectacular. Of all the spots we visited on the @ngexodusaveirofest road trip last week Nazare was the one place that got me really excited. I can't wait to come back here when the waves are huge to shoot surfing. Thanks @bernardonconde for including this stop on the tour! #nazare#portugal#surf#surfing
The view from the Torre atop the Serra da Estrela mountain range, which means the “Star mountain,” in central Portugal. The peak is a wide, flat spot that also has a ski area. At an altitude of 1,993 metres (6,539 feet), it was quite cold this morning - around 2 degrees Celsius. The view looking down at the surrounding mountains in the range, with fog built up between the mountain layers, was gorgeous. I built a 200-megabyte panoramic image file from ten separate images taken with the new Nikon D850. The detail in the final image file is insane. Thanks to the @ngexodusaveirofest for this incredible tour of Portugal! #portugal#serradaestrela#torre#exodusaveirofest#nikon@nikonusa#nikond850
The Panamint Mountains reflected in Badwater at Death Valley National Park, California. This image was shot years ago on Fuji Velvia. Right now aI am at the @ngexodusaveirofest in Aveiro, Portugal and have been neglecting my Instagram account. I will be posting a few images from Portugal in the days to come but thought I'd post an image here in the mean time. #badwater#panamintmountains#deathvalley#california
The towers of Torres del Paine National Park glowing in the early morning sunlight above an alpine lake in Chilean Patagonia.
Tech Tip: I shot this image way back in 2008. Since then the software for working up raw images files has advanced massively. My old worked up file had way more contrast than the one you see here since it was worked up in the original version of Lightroom. Using the latest version of ACR in Lightroom (V4) I was able to re-work the image and pull out a lot more detail for a better final image. This is just one of many reasons I always shoot in raw. @adobe#lightroom#torresdelpaine#patagonia#chile@nikonusa#nikon
