Capturing the Pro capturing

A few weeks ago my friend Hugo invited me for a levada walk … Queimadas to Caldeirão Verde … the path starts at the guesthouse (Queimadas) and goes through a beautiful emerald green paradise … with waterfalls on the way. It is a moderated walk of approximate 4 hours.

Just a simple levada walk … you will think. But in Hugo’s case it was different … namely … he wanted to take pictures of the levada. Not just the standard holidays-pictures … but the more professional approach.

Carrying a Nikon D100 SLR camera, a bag full of films, lenses and a tripod … we went to the levada. I took my faithful Canon PowerShot with me … a little bit ashamed hidden in my bag …

While Hugo took pictures of the beautiful scenery we came across the levada …. I took pictures of him taking the pictures. I must say the images that I took with the PowerShot are not bad … you can see the Pro with his Nikon D100 High performance digital SLR camera in action … capturing Mother Nature’s handwork of waterfalls, levada channels, Laurisilvia offspring and other beauties this wonderful path offers.

We also came a couple of tourists on our way. One was even riding on a (mountain)bike … on the levada. Another Spanish tourist wanted to show off to his walking companions by taking a dangerous path that goes right under a waterfall. Hugo captured the moment … and I captured Hugo capturing the moment.

It was a fun day …
