Photographer's Note

This one is a another post of my Serie about Azores and is about a very beautiful botanical garden at Furnas village and lagoon, called "Terra Nostra Garden". This is near the center of S.Miguel Island. Here is also a well known place for tourists and photos known in the world.

S.Miguel is the main 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 and also a half way between north and Equater hemisphere.

Note 1: Cristina, a very well kwown person here that is known by the nickname SNUGGLEAPHAGUS, have another angle picture of this place and for a very important complementary information addition see here: Link

NOTE 2: This is a approach to the lake of this exotic botanical garden with a very cloudy, hazy and just near raining weather.

Note 3: If YOU want to see a previous nature view of Furnas volcanic activity that is near a few kilometers from this garden and also for complementary information, so go here: Link

Note 4: In a WS-Wokshop I post the same picture but Just like a painting for TE Members that like this Post Processing type.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I didn't cropped anything in my original, but the reduction factors for 200k where very difficult with this dense pixels. I waist hours and hours to obtain this one for post that I like very much. ** The reduction allways increases sharpness ** so this is a advice to new Members and all you don't mind, this minor and particular fact!

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.

AZORES have harmonious mountains, sea scenery, walles and dolphins, cows, milk and excelent cheese for all the world, black and green Tea, pinneaple and also a great wonderfull volcanic sceneries, nature contrast and lagoons.

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

Thanks to ALL of YOU and I hope that a great part of TE Members like this new post about this beautiful Island.

The best to you all.
Fernando
