[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Madeira is a Portuguese volcanic island off the northwest coast of Africa. Madeira is famous for its wines, flowers and hiking along its extensive network of levadas (aquaducts). There were lots of clouds and mist and some were just spectacular in the right light.

I metered for the clouds in order to capture the depth and shapes in them since they are the centerpiece. Unfortunately the result is to get a dark landscape--but that is how I saw it at the time.

This is a beautiful shot. Appropriately titled. I honestly thought it was a wave of water until I saw it full screen. I have taken cloudly shots atop of Haleakala on Maui, but have never seen such a shaped and rolling action.

Impresive shot, amanzing colors and details. great shot, Bravoooo.çTFS


Amazing shot of clouds. I have never seen anything like that before. Well composed, maybe a little underexposed though.

HI Karin

Superb POV and capture. This cascading waterfall is truly a spectacle. Very impressive. Well done!

I have done a small PP workshop for you which I hope you will like. :-)

Indeed a cloudy waterfall!! I thought it really was a waterfall!!! You can see at the little house on the bottm how big it all is! I don't mind the dark landscape, it gave the clouds a great effect!

Well done! Thanks for sharing!

bonjour Karin,
Madeire... j'ai adoré cette île !, l'île aux fleurs, magnifique
finalement le paysage si foncé renforce l'ambiance avec ce nuage qui déferle. Drôle d'impression.
Bonne journée


Hello Karin!
this shot is amaizing: you are right, it looks like a waterfall. The view is just great and colours splendid with this light.

Spectacular cloudy waterfall! Incredible illusion! Excellent compositon and very pleasant image despite the under exposure. The wokshop works well! Bravo! Annie

Hi Karin,
Nice shot, amazing site to see! TFS

Not sure if a lens-hood would have prevented the lens flare on top right but it is a breathtaking view, thanks Karin.


Hi Karin,

The darkness is not a problem at all!! It also makes the sky a bit darker and dramatic. Love it! Thanks for sharing!

Hello Karin:)))
Great capture of this spectacular cloud effect - I'm impressed.
This look like science fiction or catastrophic movie - when dam is broken and disaster running down the hill.
Great photo - thanks, Tom

Karin, great work with beautiful colors and great light, lovely photo, very well done, TFS

WOW Karin! I have never seen anything like this EVER! Amazing how the clouds look like WAVES on the ocean! Very nice shot, an amazing view!

Hello Karin, you have the eye to shoot great landscape scene. It's a very impressive image of that beautiful place. Very good work !


Hi Karin and Michel
This very good photo shows also a dramatic change of weather.
What I have seen in the mountains is that falling clouds are bad news

hi Karin
great shot
great presentation

Hello, Karin:)

I'm generally obsessed by waterfalls, but this one is really imressive! I really liked wonderful colors of the sky and waterfall itself, this is an awesome photo, congratulations!

Best regards, Slavica

Hi karin, this is awesome! One of a kind shot of the fog that falls into the valley like a huge wave!
Very nice pov from where you stand. you must have got up early that morning to catch this.

Very well done!
As you say in your note that you centered metered the clouds rendering a darler valley, maybe an evaluative metering would have made it.

Tfs. Take care, Yan :)
ps: many thx for the crit on "Happy Birthday Vandana".

its a work of art.. well done

This is truly an awesome capture. It does indeed look like a water falls. Well seen and well composted. I like the little house near the bottom to give it scale. Well done.

Hello Karin!
Excelent photo! The water fall and sky are very beauty!
The colors are perfect!
Well Done!

Very nice capture. What a cool natural phenomenon. I like the lighting and the brillance of the colors. One way to get what you want is to take two pictures. one for the clouds and one for the land then combine them in a software. (unless you are a purist and shun post processing) ;) cheers and TFS

Spectacular view, really great shot of unforgettable moment. Nice colores and good saturation.
