Salto do Prego

3 kilometers each way in humid jungle and steep hills and hillsides took it's time! Finally we were there, a beautiful waterfall in the Azores called Salto do Prego was in front of us. So were 20 people bathing and having a good time in the warmth. Patience. I drank some water, put on my ND-filters and waited. Finally the sight was people free!

My best front row

Me and my wife had our honeymoon at Terra Nostra Garden Hotel in the Azores, such lovely place and great hotel! While there I of course wanted to catch the milky way somehow. Yes i was lucky one night as it was clear sky and I could just walk out on the hotel sun terrace with my tripod and get a shot of it between the trees and the hotel, nice timing! The best front row i have ever had on a hotel :)

Bamboo Kung Fu

Well, it's my wife doing a fun "kung fu" pose with my lens in a bamboo forest we visited in the Azores :)  It's the first bamboo forest i ever seen live! I have always wanted to see one as they look so cool and beautiful in all asian kung fu movies, like the scenes in House of Flying Daggers and others :)
This one was from our walk around the big crater lake Lagoa das Furnas where the nature shifted all the time.

The View

I really like these camouflage trees and hortensias that grew along the small roads in the Azores everywhere you go. That and a nice view over the atlantic a warm day is something to remember now when winter is coming here in the north.

A proud Eucalyptus

It's a big tall and proud Eucalyptus globulus that i met in the Azores. I have never seen such cool big long roots before! It was a very tall tree, higher then the palm trees that surrounds it. I guess it's from this Eucalyptus we got the oil for cough drops and the nice smelling essential oil for oil lamps.

My big brothers

When walking around the big crater lake Lagoa das Furnas in the Azores the nature changes character all the time. Suddenly we had a tree-lined avenue with these really tall big trees surrounding us. We got a strong feeling of having conscious beings following and caring for us on our path like big brothers. It felt very peaceful and relaxing going there just absorbing the nature in all it's magnificence.

Lagoa do Fogo

On the trip in the Azores we wanted to see the famous Lagoa do Fogo (Lagoon of Fire) as we know it would be an experience both personal and as a photographer. And it was. The lagoon is a crater lake quite high up on the island. Here we are at 900 meters and was lucky to get a clear sunny day as well. Most days you only see fog and clouds here, we actually tried it the day before and only saw 10 metres in front of us. That was a adventure in it self though!
On a technical level this is an panorama of five pictures to get the whole view, and a great view it was!

Mosteiros

On my travel in the Azores i came to the little village of Mosteiros in the northwestern part of San Miguel Island. I really liked the coastal cliffs and the black volcanic rocks there. To cough that kind of timeless feeling on photo i used my Big Stopper filter to get this 3.5 minutes long exposure. A b/w conversion enhances the timeless feeling and also gives it a bit darker mood that i like.

Chapel of Nossa Senhora das Vitórias

As part of my Azores series i present this old gothic chapel from 1882 that lies next to the beautiful lake "Lagoa das Furnas" inside of whats actually a big volcanic crater. Me and my wife hade a great day walking around the lake in the special Azore nature and at the end we arrive to the Chapel just in time for the sun to set. Unfortunately the fence was closed so i couldn't go in and see how it looked like from the inside, but i sure liked it from the outside.
