this was a unique moment in which from the rooftop of an abandoned hotel at são miguel, we had the privilege of attending a breathless gold rush sunset showing how small we are in the world. this is a place that never stops surprising us. s.miguel, azores | june 2016
the lagoa do fogo (lagoon of fire) has its own micro climate and its usually difficult to see all of its splendor in a cloudy day. nonetheless its beauty gains a mysterious aura transporting us to a suspense scenario of what we are getting behind each cloud. you can wait seated at one of the hill and be surprised at each instance. we decided to do the small walking trail by one of the lagoon edges but right down the water we realized that we hadn’t appropriate shoes to keep going and had to abort our walk. for sure, a thing to do next time there. s.miguel, azores | april 2016
