This is a new return after some recent different post of this known Travelogue to Fayal and Horta Island at the nice Azores Archipel at the deep North Atlantic Ocean, that you can see in my left Info of this page.
This is a Picture taken near Horta Harbour and the Marina and this is a capture made by a small boat that makes the Tourist Voyages to the Pico deep Sea and dolphins views. Here I have a different axis view of Horta from a left 90 degrees of approach.
This shot is dedicated to you all and specially to the TE Members that like pictures taken with a boat in motion and beautiful surrounding nature.
You can see another shot boat navigating near this place and with direct Horta view in the same Axis view Here_1: Link and other in a 90-Dg right approach view with Horta in front Here_2: Link
Now, if You want to see the Local where I took this picture I give a Google Map with a reference CAMERA ICON here: Link
TECHNICAL Notes and Information: This was taken after one hour of Midday, the weather was good, the Sun was near my backwards and it was a few brighty moment. I only cropped a few at the lower and upper frame and corrected also with a little smell of Contrast.
ISO=80,Focal Lenght=27mm and PL linear Olympus Filter.
In my Photo Information YOU have a Travelogue of my voyage and complementary two WS-Workshops with the same boat taken one some seconds before and the other also some seconds after with the same Camera.
These beautiful Islands are located in the vast Atlantic Ocean somewhere half a way between Europe and North America. They are natural and preserved nature wonders that have Sailors, Solitaire person navigators and important world tourism and preserved Sportiv Game-Fishing with people linked to United States, Canada, Brazil, Europe and also naturally to Continental Portugal.
Thanks in advance and I hope you like this boat view of nature and approaching the Marina.
All the Best and TFS to you All.

une composition très vacancière et de fait elle est du mois d'août, un des plus beaux de l'année.
Le soleil tape bien et d'où tu as pris la photo, on a l'impression d'être sur ce bateau et de voyager.
D'excellentes conditions de lumières pour réussir une toute belle photo.
BIen belle semaine à toi mon ami.

The way you've exposed the boat makes us feel like we are travelling on it.
Well the rock it's amazing and such a blue and transparent sea. Gorgeous scene...love it :)

A beautifull sea, Fernando, you seem to bring the sun with you when you go out to take pictures. The cliff falling into the sea in oblic makes a good composition.
All the best,

Wonderful light and color, especially the clouds and the turqoise sea. Amazing detail throughout, even to the green hillside in the distance. The diagonal of the rocks gives one a sense of peril. I agree with your excellent critiques above especially Sónia's "The way you've exposed the boat makes us feel like we are travelling on it. Well the rock it's amazing and such a blue and transparent sea. Gorgeous scene...love it :)

Estou de regresso! às vezes as ausências são necessárias, também, para cumprirmos com as nossas obrigações profissionais.
As construções que se vêm da arriba são aqueles locais onde se colocam os "olheiros" para avistar as baleias?E que informam a embarcações ao que actualmente se chama "walewatch".
Gosto da composição e das cores sempre fortes e luminosas dos Nossos Açores

Hi Fernando, A nice composition to show the diagonal shape fo the coastal line cut into the ocean. It is fun to see how you take the picture with a slice of the boat where you were. Good capture of the architecture on the slope. Nice contrast to see the coastal line between the blue water and blue sky.
nwoehnl (122) 2006-04-10 20:42
The composition of this is quite nice, Fernando - the dropping rock face at the left and the foreground detail of the boat build a good V-shape that pulls the viewer's eye into the scene. The vivid colors on the bright summer day are well shown and portray a pleasant holiday feel. You need to watch out your sharpening as it looks a bit agressive on some parts of the photo, particularly on the rock that starts to show some weird pixellisation. Greetings from Japan.

Hi Fernando. Well this is a fun one. It's so bright and colorful and topped off with a great sky. It looks like a beautiful coastline to navigate. tfs Fernando.
Gerrit (52097) 2006-04-11 1:14
Good composition with the top of the boat included and the strange building on the rocks.
THanks and regards, Gerrit

interesting travel, good composition. I like the sharpness and colours, too. Good captured a moment and well done photo.
pablominto (53746) 2006-04-11 3:49
Fernando, my friend...
This is one fine point of view, as you are approaching the town after a hopefully nice trip on the seas...
It is interesting to see these rugged cliffs from seaside, as we usually see images taken from land...
Here we get the feeling of being on board with you... Nice!
ChrisJ (116136) 2006-04-11 4:04
Well framed, & not so easy to do on a moving boat. I like the diagonal slope of the rocky headland, & repetition of the 2 lookouts & the green tree forming a trio. Wonderful color & sharpness. Obrigado!

Bom dia Fernando,
Mais uma excelente captura do mar nos Açores, numa perspectiva muito interessante, diferente do habitual. Gosto muito da composição, com a inclusão do barco à esquerda e equilibrado com a encosta rochosa à esquerda. A diagonal da encosta e o seu 'grafismo' natural, juntamente com aqueles elementos no topo (observatórios, penso), aumentam o dinamismo da imagem, já de si dinâmica pela inclusão do barco em movimento. Excelente profundidade de campo, com a vista da Horta lá ao longe, cores, luminosidade e definição da imagem. E como é já habitual, mais duas imagens em ws, igualmente muito boas, em perspectivas e aproximações diferentes de que gosto muito também. Mais um excelente trabalho!
Obrigado e um abraço amigo,
efigesta (12188) 2006-04-11 4:36
eu gosto de barcos e de fotos de barcos e gosto das suas fotos
boas cores nesta foto e um bom pov
abraço e bom dia

Hi Fernando, the mood of "boat approaching destination" has been well achieved. We see the harbour in the distance, we are tired and we already want to arrive. The boat seems to be very close to the beautiful falling cliffs. Excellent compo, we even get some nice reflections on the right. Congratulations and regards! Daniel
atus (15856) 2006-04-11 5:51
very nice shot in motion from the boat with a very good PoV. Very well composed with the side of the boat included into the shot. The colors are beautiful and the note is exhaustive and very interesting,as usual.
Thanks and best regards.
PhotoLogic (211) 2006-04-11 8:54
I like the balance of composition, great details. Of course, you could put me on the water any nice day!
Amirsun (2122) 2006-04-11 10:38
Nice shot from interesting place! I like the clear sky with some clouds...
tanks for posting.
Schultzy (5446) 2006-04-11 12:31
What a nice place !
The colors are really beautifull.
I also like the shots taken from a boat in particulary places like this one.
Well done !
Giorgio (11279) 2006-04-11 12:37
- A beautiful maritime landscape, I like the nice colours, the light is exellent the part of boat in front plan still adds of the relief to this picture, well done!
AiresSantos (56155) 2006-04-11 12:49
de facto estive ausente por uns dias com forte vontade de voltar e de partilhar criticas e comentários. Obrigado pelas amaveis palavras.
Esta foto tem a tua marca principalmente na definição e na cor. A profundidade é excelente e o angulo muito bem escolhido.
Parabens e obrigado por partilhares mais uma linda vista dos Açores.
Um abraço, Aires
aznegrao (10316) 2006-04-11 16:11
Gosto de imagens dinamicas como essa Fernando!!
O enquadramento preciso, com o bom uso da técnica, aliada a otima qualidade fotográfica resultou nessa otima composição, cheia de movimento e interesse.
Um grande abraço do Brasil!!
TeresaT (10806) 2006-04-11 17:46
Bonita imagem esta que nos mostra.
Pefeito sharpness nas escarpas.
Bom POV e bonitas cores.
alvaraalto (16368) 2006-04-11 18:07
It seems, as I gather from a lot of your beautiful pictures that you keep sailing in the neighbourhood of the Azores. I hope you will head in time for Rotterdam.
jhm (155370) 2006-04-12 3:33
The rocks to left, are amazing the erosion are very clear-cut, composition and framing are marvelous, also the point view together with colours are a pleasure for looking.
Thanks a lot.
carper (96) 2006-04-12 5:16
very nice shot fernando.
well taken shot of the boat I like the scene, the perspective of the boat and the composition with your friend the sea is very nice and from a high quality, very good job my friend.
Fixfocus (9385) 2006-04-12 7:00
Excellent idea to include the details of the boat in the composition.I like the inviting perspective and the pleasant color palette and the mood of course.
feather (51130) 2006-04-13 4:59
Excellent composition to include the boat in the foreground; it is a perfect lead-in to the scene. The triangular cliff on the left makes a perfect balance. I also like the WS photos but agree with your choice of main post.
apazevedo (5469) 2006-04-13 17:18
Olá Fernando! Mais uma excelente nota acompanhando uma também bela foto, com muitos "ingredientes" de que muito gosto: mar, rochedos, céu, barcos...
A perspectiva dá-nos a sensação de estar a bordo e faz-nos pensar para onde irá o barco...
Belo trabalho! Um abraço
aloyho (6798) 2006-04-17 9:38
I really admired your ability to skillfully select and blend the seperate elements into a very pleasing whole. There is just the right amount of each - the sky, water, mountain and boat. The lighting is just superb and the clouds are most helpful. Congratulations!! Regards.
zeca (19762) 2006-04-18 1:56
Olá Fernando! Gosto muito da foto! Cores e nitidez muito boas! Mas o que mais me encanta é o tema, que frequentemente também retrato. Coincidentemente a minha última foto para TE mostra uma perspectiva semelhante, a partir também de uma lancha! Muito bom trabalho!
