Photographer's Note

In my previous shots I post my initial approach to this beautiful S.Miguel Island situated in Azores 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.

My thanks to Cristina, a very well kwown person here that have the nickname SNUGGLEAPHAGUS. It's very important to see her work and complementary information in this S.Miguel area here: Link

Cristina was born and lived from her first years in this beautiful Island and she says about this wonderful place that I post about S.Migel Island, so her words:

"If the Azores are beautiful, then Sao Miguel is one of its most precious jewel, and Furnas a bit of Paradise" and " WHAT APPEARS TO BE SMOKE IS IN FACT STEAM FROM THE CALDERAS, GEYSERS, HOT SPRINGS AND FUMEROLES DUE TO VOLCANIC ACTIVITY IN THE AREA".

This picture was also taken in a grey morning and at my recent birthday that I travelled here.

This place is near a beautiful lagoon that is called "Furnas Lagoon" that I will post in future steps.

This one of the more important and nice nature places in this Island, that is visited in a year for several thousand of tourists. Here is made also a well known gastronomic speciality that I will post in future, using this richest hydrologic natural energy.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Here in my Photo Information YOU have a WS-Workshop where all must see another complementary shot and view approach to the natural volcanic and energetic phenomena. So, two pictures in one and two complementary ways of view with my eyes and camera.

AZORES is like a VIVALDI Four Seasons of simphony and weather condition in a natural atmosphere and ambience, also in a daily life cycle but with good warm climate.

Now my current Serie would be this particular Atlantic Island with harmonious mountains, sea scenery, walles and dolphins, cows with milk and excelent cheese for all the world, black and green Tea, pinneaple and also a great wonderfull volcanic sceneries, nature and lagoons to post, and 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, Brasil and also naturally to Continental Portugal.

Thanks to ALL of YOU and I hope that a must of all TE members like this approach.

The best to you all.
Fernando
