Pico Ruivo, Madeira Island, by Joel Sérgio Pereira
Pico Ruivo is the highest peak on the Madeira Islands. It can be reached only by foot, usually either from Pico do Arieiro (3rd highest) after a strenuous hike, or from Achada do Teixeira with a shorter, easier trail. There is an additional trail leading west to Encumeada. Just below the summit is a hut offering simple accommodation and drinks.
Pico Ruivo is 1862 meters (6107 ft) high  and provides some of the most incredible views of the island from coast to coast, but unpredictable weather conditions can make it quite dangerous

Madeira Island is the ideal location for music videos and film productions.

Hugo Reis was born in Funchal in 1971 and works as a photographer. Through international auctions, private sellers and throughout internet, Hugo Reis has acquired since 1996 films (film reels) related to Madeira. These films vary in their format (35mm, 16mm, 9.5 mm (Pathé), 8mm and Super 8mm).
Aware of the fragility of the film degrading easily over time and the importance of preserving these memories from the past, Hugo Reis proceeded with the digital conversion of about half of his collection (about 30 film reels) in order to preserve them permanently. These digital conversions were made in a proper studio in the U.K. The rest of the collection (about 40 films of various formats) are awaiting the opportunity to be converted in the near future.
