Photographer's Note

I visited Azores Islands some days ago, that is a nice beautiful Portuguese archipel of nine islands situated in the vast Atlantic Ocean somewhere half a way between Europe and North America. Now I'm posting some recent posts of my visit to S.Miguel the main Island.

This view is a approach from a upper angle of the high mountain East approach to the center of the Island with my Zoom camera and capturing the North view and a more narrow perspective between North and South that is near a 10 km. You can see this second approach to Ponta Delgada in my WS that is also very important and makes Two pictures in One.

This is a shot to RIBEIRA GRANDE a town very near the capital PONTA DELGADA but in this angle side and in a weather multi-faceted condition.

You can see my first aproach by Jet Airbus plain to Ponta Delgada, here:

NOTE: I will make the translation of a great TE member that lived in this Island and that have make critiques to my pictures about some questions about weather and light conditions. So, Cristina very well kwown here by the nickname SNUGGLEAPHAGUS, says about S.Miguel and Azores Islands in my last post.

Her words and experience in Portuguese: "As cores e atmosfera da foto estao iguais realidade deste lugar e ambiente. Chuva ao meio dia, o sol s 12:15, nevoeiro s 12:45 e talvez por volta das 12:59 um grande arco iris para observar...!

Her Words in English: The Atmosphere and Colors are equal and transcribe the reallity of this local and natural ambience. In any island of Azores you have a raining momment at 12h00, sunny day at 12h15, haze time at 12h45 and possible a great rainbow to make a picture later after 12h59.

YOU will see this complementary scenery to a right view in my WS - Workshop work, that you must look, because is important.

MY current Serie is about this particular Atlantic Island with harmonious mountains, sea scenery, cows and wonderfull volcanic sceneries, nature and lagoons, that I will try to catalog in different selective ways to post.

This is a natural and preserved Island that have many people linked to United States, Canada, North Europe ans also naturally to Continental Portugal.

In these posts I explain in more detail the detail focus of a momment attention to this Serie of pictures and momment.

I like your TE comments and critiques and in AZORES we have like a type of VIVALDI Four Seasons In a day simphony. It's difficult to shot here and also I will do my best with some particular little PP software details that I will use only in some particular situations.

Thanks to ALL of YOU and I hope that also like this approach, from a point of knowledge, culture, voyage and share ideas, peoples and momments in life.

The best to you all.
Fernando
