I’m back from Azores. For so long I’ve been postponing a visit to this hidden treasure, maybe because it’s easily accessible from my hometown, maybe because I got distracted with exotic locations far away from home. For reasons that are too long to write about (and that aren’t relevant for why I went there) I ended up booking that long delayed flight.
I avoided the temptation of trying to put as many islands under my belt I possibly could. I aimed for a slow trip to dodge the very unstable weather of the North Atlantic while have some calmer moments along the way, so I focused in just one, The remaining islands, like the unspoiled Flores or the massive Pico, can wait for another time. With all that in mind São Miguel, the largest and most diverse island, had the and responsibility of introducing me to Azores. In a couple of weeks I seen small fishing harbors, been at religious festivities and walked in footpaths while enjoying one of the most beautiful you can think of. These photos are an early preview of what I’ve been doing around there for the last weeks, with some of the different subjects I photographed.
