Landscape Photography By Carlos Resende

Landscape Photography By Carlos Resende

"My name is Carlos Resende. I am 41 years old and I live in Lisbon, Portugal. I am an amateur photographer who is very passionate about the art of landscape photography.
Not having inherited any photographic genes in my DNA, I would say that photography came into my life by accident. It resulted from my need to find a replacement for my previous ‘hobby’ which used to be Archery.
I try to enjoy and draw from it all the pleasure there is in capturing what the moment has to offer. That’s probably why I like to capture images of places or times of day that carry us into parallel universes transmitting a sense of calm and tranquility as opposed to our ‘crazy’ everyday life. I’m always on the hunt for these new realities and I look forward to be transformed into those new realities in one way or another.
I draw my inspiration from the work of Michael Levin, Julius Tjintjelaar, Matt Toynbee, Maria Strömvik, Andrew Dolphin , Nana Sousa Dias, António Sá and Paulo Dias." ~ Carlos Resende

Fantastic.  He says he's an amateur but I hope he's at least selling prints of his work.

No joke! Is that 1st image the new default Chrome OS (Chromebook) background?? I hope they licensed it from you for a good fee!

Omy, these are absolutely breath taking! The 10th image with the hole in the middle of the that a photoshopped thing or real place?

Carlos Resende's picture

Thanks Tonyia ;)
Regarding the image, it is real ! 
This is the discharge hole of a Portuguese Dam that was at maximum capacity when i made the shot.

Very impressive!!!!

Stunning shots. Looks like most were shot with really long exposures -- using a variable ND maybe?
