I'd like to thank all readers for the outstanding wide support to this post :)
I'm sincerely glad that you are enjoying this magnificent view of São Miguel and know that you are most welcome to visit the Azores :)
You can discover more great spots at the official site: 

(And if you're wondering, no, I'm not affiliated with the Tourism Board. Luckily, I've been in São Miguel 3 times now and fell in love with the island and the people :) A while ago I posted two photos in/near São Miguel (in the G+ My Views series) that you may like: and

Wow!Postcards | #35 Dalton (New Hampshire, USA)


Photographer: Yegor Malinovskii


"This year is the snowiest winter of my life.
In Portland Maine, we received almost 90 inches of snow in the last four weeks, while the entire seasonal average is just above 60. 
As New England continues to get hammered by yet another storm , wind and cold temperatures, my passion for cold seems to be tested each day.
Yet light like this and incredible ice/snow formations, sea smoke, super crisp and clear air remind me every time that winter is my absolute favorite time to photograph. 
So here is to all of you who's in love with the snow as much as I am! 
Again, big thanks to Alex Noriega ( for his technique guidance and incredible post-processing teachings."

A little gem hidden in the middle of the Gerês, and affordable too :) Friendly staff, pool in the middle of the forest (!), and a simple but tasty breakfast. The bungalows need some refurbishments, but are still quite comfortable. Regular guests give it a charming and family environment. And don't forget the 10pm tea & cookies :)))
