Azores

Pentax K10D + DA* 16-50/2.8

Last Summer we (myself, wife and two kids) spent five days in three of the Azores Islands (Faial, Pico and S. Jorge). We were amazed at how each island had such distinct landscape features and cultural elements.

The daunting view of Pico's volcano was almost constant and is something I will never forget. These photos hardly do justice to how impressive is seeing that massive mountain rise above the ocean, alway surrounded by different shapes of clouds. We'll have to go back there after our kids grow older, so that they won't forget this view either.

Thoose two shots are really great. I've had the same problem travelling to Guadeloupe, with the volcano standing proudly over the city Basse Terre, I was never able to render the imposing look of that mountain ove the fragile town. Good work!
