Continuing the tale of two weeks, here is more insight into the beauty of the island:

Sunset over Ribeira Grande, my lover’s home town and one of the nicest places I’ve ever visited. The mist you see in the background is actually water spray from the ocean.

Do you have the guts to walk in the middle of the pond? Botanical garden, Furnas.

Lagoa de Fogo, Azores. A crater lake situated in the middle of the island. One of three crater lakes. The dark blue you see in the background right under the clouds is actually the ocean.

 

‘Bout it for now.

Will return with part III as soon as I process more pictures. Fingers crossed for a panorama!

Swaying in the wind

Home, nature

This is an older picture I took while up on some hills back in my home town. Quite tricky because of the harsh shadows and powerful gusts of wind. I’m surprised it didn’t come out completely ruined.

There’s also an air of nostalgia to it, since I haven’t been home for a while…

I need an adapter for my old lenses!
