Photographer's Note

Recently a fellow Trekearth memeber described the weather in Sao Miguel Azores as Vivaldi's 'The four Seasons' in one a day. Thank you Fernando . This was such a day, every few minutes it was a new weather surprise (we had rain, drizzle, humidity, subshine, wind, a rainbow, and a couple thunder claps- all within a 5 mile area in a period of 2 hours). We had gone to visit a group of small lakes called Lagoas Empadadas. These lakes have only received attention in last few years, and only recently have there been decent roads to drive to see them. The area is beautiful, with a dense canopy of trees. The ground is very soft because it's all moss about a meter deep. Sometimes during spring there are thousands of crayfish litterally crawling out of the lakes.

We had been exploring the area and I was taking a few photos, when my husband came with the idea for this composition. This is the walkway to the parking area. The steps were interesting and I have a few shots of this without a human; but I like this much better. The violation part being that the human is my husband, but I'll take my chances by posting it.
It was difficult to deal with this day becase there was so much mist in the air that everything was a little soft and slightly out of focus.

I thought about cropping the white foggy and misty sky but then i didn't like the photo as much.
The photo was contrast adjusted, cropped and saved for the web. Cloned out white cane.
