Photographer's Note

In my previous shots I post some approach sceneries and landscapes of the beautiful S.Miguel Island situated in Azores. Now I will post my recent pictures about Faial and Pico, two nice and also beautiful Islands in the Portuguese archipel that is situated in the vast Atlantic Ocean somewhere half a way between Europe and North America.

This picture was taken with good time at morning with the sun up and backword when I was crossing from Horta the main town of Faial to Madalena a small village in Pico Island, where is situated the highest Portuguese mountain. You can see Horta at distance in the picture.

This place is near Madalena and have two great rocks in the Sea. One is called STAND UP and the other STAND DOWN.

These two Islands that are part of the five Central Islands, are visited all the year for several thousand of tourists.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Here in my Photo Information YOU have a WS-Workshop with a picture taken five minutes before for a complementary shot and information.
