Photographer's Note

In this shot I return to my May/2005 Travelogue at S.Miguel Island in a volcanic place now a nature Lagoon near the village of SEVEN CITIES in the west part of S.Miguel Island, that is a well known place for tourists and photos of all the world. So I left Faial and Pico Islands in Pause for moments.

S.Miguel is situated in the Eastern part of 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 North and Equater hemisphere.

Thanks to Cristina, a very well kwown person, that lived is youth at this Island, that here is known by the nickname SNUGGLEAPHAGUS. So see her work sharing work in this place from another angle and for a very important complementary information addition here at near place: Link

This is one of the great and more international known Island Volcanic Lagoons in this Island and this capture photo focuses the GREEN LAGOON. As i said the small typical village is located at the left side of this frame.

IMPORTANT Note: As I know the longitude and latitude of the place but I have no Satelitte Map view of Azores Islands I added TWO Ws's with the surrounding paths to the local I took this picture. Please see also these pictures as a reference of the place.

TECHNICAL Information: Little cropped at the lower base and a smell of Contrast and Hue because I didn't use any Polarizer filter.

ISO=64 and Focal Lenght=45mm with my C-770UZ Camera.

All is green, a curved path and a Smell of Blue nature with good weather, near Midday and with the Sun rays approaching my frontal view.

If YOU want to see my previous nature view of this place and global approach with the village and the two different and independent lagoons Green and Blue in one, see this one as reference and moment picture: Link

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.

This is a natural and preserved Island that have many people linked to United States, Canada, North Europe and Brazil in holidays, many Atlantic sailormen and also people natural of our Continental Portugal.

Thanks to ALL of YOU and I hope that you like this Nice Island and Travelogue.

The best to you all and Merry Christmas in advance.
Fernando
