This is a return to other view of Horta at the Fayal Island after my previous post in a coastline approach in a opposite axis. Now from a High Vantage point of view East-West near 3Km of two other previous posts at TE and also near Espalamaca promontory that I have also post some pictures and is also a known place for great views and photography. For a complementary view you can see two other Travelogue posts Here_1: Link and also Here_2: Link
I will complement and upgrade my Local Map Info only tomorrow by the TE Limit of two additional WS's in a daily basis. So, in my Photo Information YOU have the Travelogue Work of my holidays at August at this nice Island and also two WS-Workshops that are a aditional complementary views of this moment capture and also interesting preserved place. The first WS is a near approach view of this one posted and the other WS is the car and road location where I shot these photos.
IMPORTANT TECHNICAL INFORMATION: These pictures were taken near after 13h00m GMT with good weather and the Sun rays approaching my left 90 degrees frontal eyes.
ISO=80, Focal Lenght=27mm, Wide Zoom Lenghts and a Linear Polarizer filer 40.5 from Olympus. Few cropped at the Top and Bottom of the frame and after and at end a smell touch of Neatimage in the sky after the reduction factors to Post.
These Islands are part of the five Central Islands, that are visited all the year for several thousand of tourists and sea navigators from all the world. It's like a world navigation network AND you can see here also the important Horta Marina!
These are natural and preserved nature wonders that have Sailors, Solitaire 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 to ALL of YOU and I hope that many of TE members like this approaching Travelogue documented work and also as a divulgation of nicely places to visit and make holidays in preserved areas.
Thanks in advance and the best for you all.
FINAL NOTE: My next one is from my Birthtown and it would be I hope a nice Surprise.

Ola Fernando Guedes!!
O olhar do fotografo e uma coisa fantastica. Vejo isso aqui, otimo angulo, cores e perspectiva criando uma composição bela e relaxante.
Saudações meu amigo.

This is beautiful place. The island is looking great. The symmetrical farming in slopes is looking great. The sea in the background going deep in the horizon is amazing. The foreground tree is making this shot very beautiful.
Thanks for showing this great island.

- Pretty landscape with this hill in staircase and this intense green who stands out with the blue of the sky and the sea, hydrangeas to the foreground adds some additional colours, beautiful, cheers!
euniceveiga (10) 2006-04-12 12:16
Mais uma linda foto!
Valeu a pena subir lá acima, certo?
Jeppe (18654) 2006-04-12 12:40
A truly wonderfull landscape you present for us here - Thanks for the extra documentary shots as well - I can see the shadows from the sun kind of special compare with the ones I used to around here.
Looking forward to the next shot - so you was born on the Acores
Schultzy (5446) 2006-04-12 13:38
Perfect DOF, perfetly neat shot, great light and colors.
I like the lines in the center of the shot and the nice little harbor on the right side.
Great landscape !
Very well done Fernando !

un superbe paysage qui évoque les balades au chaud, sous un soleil agréable, au sec.
Un espace bien aménagé et bien soigné, un exemple à suivre pour nos campagnes.
Il y a pas mal d'éléments graphiques dans cette photo, comme ces courbes garnies d'arbustes.
Une exposiion parfaite, pas de surexposition, tout est bien éclairé.
Best greetings from Belgium.
Graal (101082) 2006-04-12 14:03
beautiful landscape, superb composition and colours. I like the green of grass and red roofs. Good captured and well done.
rhizomes (15343) 2006-04-12 14:44
Nice view, impressive with this sharpness and this composition !
I like to see all these houses near the sea.
Great landscape !
RGatward (20062) 2006-04-12 15:32
Stunning landscape, and good use of the tree in the compo.
sovieira (289) 2006-04-12 15:48
Magnificent view from the islands. The undulations of the fields are excellent, so relaxing...with the most amazing ocean in the background.
I love it :)
PJE (20758) 2006-04-12 17:04
Fernando I must say this photo is really captivating to my attention. The interesting foreground details surrounding the tree, the rows of trees along the hillside, and the white homes with red roofs in the distance makes this a real winning photo in my estimation. Good work Fernando...keep up the good work!
emjleclercq (15780) 2006-04-12 17:22
A wonderfull landscape combining your usual blue sea and a nice countryside. I like the small hedges or bushes on the qside of the cliff in the background. A very peacefull scene, straight our of Virgile.
All the best,
Gerrit (51684) 2006-04-12 18:11
Beautiful park-like landscape. Good POV, composition and framing.
Thanks and regards, Gerrit
weswang (18223) 2006-04-12 18:20
Hi Fernando, An impressive shot of the grand view from the top. Nice contrast and depth. You have well shown the lines, the curves, and the different contrast in this picture. A very well taken picture.
singuanti (15250) 2006-04-12 22:22
Hey Fernando. Thanks for uploading all of the workshops. While I personally don't mind it but others might prefer the horizon to be farther from center. As always I like the high POV. Good shot Fernando!
efigesta (12188) 2006-04-13 5:06
linda esta paisagem, um pontos de vista fantastico e belissimas cores
carper (96) 2006-04-13 5:17
a nice one of your great country Fernando,
a well taken composition with a very good point of view, there are very good details in the shot, the light is not realy easy but you did do it very good here, very good job.
sergio1 (12152) 2006-04-13 5:35
Excelente tiro panoramico de este bello lugar.
Me encata su pov y contraste de color.
capthaddock (28790) 2006-04-13 7:08
Hi Fernando - beautiful green landscape, I really like the neat rows of trees separating the fields, and the nice flowerrs complete the picture
sixTL (8596) 2006-04-13 7:53
Hola Fernando, What a beautiful countryside. Very nice shot.
kent_s (1911) 2006-04-13 9:09
Really a lovely place on earth you have here. A grat view over an ondulating landscape and, of course in your pix, a great deep blue ocean.
ChrisJ (107039) 2006-04-13 9:58
I like the repetitive patterns in the terraced hillside. A superb pov, with excellent sharpness. Congratulations!
huynt (5079) 2006-04-13 10:05
A wonderful view in your great shot. Well composition. Thanks Huy
jafadabret (56501) 2006-04-13 14:08
Fernando, c'est un paysage de rêve que tu nous présentes là. J'aime les courbes du second plan, les maisons et le port qui précède la mer. Il y a des pays qui ont tout pour plaire, une photo comme celle-ci est un cadeau.
plimrn (21344) 2006-04-13 14:41
I like the way you've composed your phot with the tree framing the terraced hillside and the way the small foreground wall forms the opposite curve of the terraces. I like this view of the small village and harbor best of all because of the wonderful detail in the tree. Good light and color throughout.
and a happy easter to you as well. Pat
TeresaT (10806) 2006-04-13 16:23
Olá Amigo Fernando,
Gosto muito desta bela composição com a árvore no canto esquerdo da imagem.
A sinuosidade do terreno cria um efeito visual muito bonito.
Belissímas cores naturais.
Feliz Páscoa para si e para os seus...e não coma muitas amêndoas ;-)
bertolucci (13362) 2006-04-14 4:15
Bom dia Fernando, A very nice perspective and depth here with lush colours - they showcase the beauty of Horta very strikingly. very nice add to your captivating travelogue. The way the main ingredients of this one are patterned - the flowers, the fields, the houses - make it graphically very pleasing too. Lovely work.
I like the way you use the WS to give us more views of this wondeful part of the Acores.
Best wishes and Happy Easter!
bantonbuju (51789) 2006-04-14 5:02
ola fernando, oh this is the place where i'd love to spend my easter holiday but seemingly it wont be possible;
excellent seascape and the vegetation seems to be blooming extensively;
nice work really;
have a happy easter,
feather (51130) 2006-04-14 8:50
This is a beautiful landscape Fernando. Despite the narrow DOF you have still achieved great depth in the image, with excellent detail. Good composition with the tree to frame the scene.
josepmarin (58085) 2006-04-14 13:25
Sí, ya vuelvo a estar aquí, y antes de colgar una foto de mis vacaciones, tengo que decirte que ésta tuya es muy buena, y me gusta mucho.
Es una composición excelente, con un paisaje de postal, con el pueblo, el mar, el cielo, los campos, y esta terraza con bellas flores y el árbol cerrando el encuadre.
Un saludo cordial,
Vato_Law (12720) 2006-04-14 15:43
Olá amigo Fernando,
Esta é uma foto diferente da série aquatica que vinha apresentando. No entanto, não deixa de estar muito bonita, com cores suaves e perfeitas, com um perfeito enquadramento e luminosidade.
fabio_ts (13696) 2006-04-15 2:36
A wonderful view Fernando, so well done and full of details, POV is excellent, great work, compliments!!
sam224 (6215) 2006-04-15 3:50
Nice landscape view with excellent OV on the bay. Good colours. I like the bush of flowers in foreground.
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2006-04-15 4:48
Wow, no word could describe the beauty here. I like it very much, also the place and the capture you`ve made.
john_c (24666) 2006-04-15 10:44
A very well composed shot with several interesting layers of interest. The foreground is well presented, with good framing with the large tree, flowers and wall. The near hillside appears almost terraced, with graduated rows of trees and bushes. The DOF allows the eye to wander far into the distance and enjoy the sea. A high quality capture, Fernando. Have a happy Easter weekend.
syd1946 (18663) 2006-04-15 12:14
This is a class landscape shot with your great
teqhnique.View and perspective are just amazing!

vincent24 (9060) 2006-04-15 13:09
It's a wonderful landscape from a good POV,your composition is well balanced and the weather seem very nice,i'd like to spend few days here to read a good book..and take pictures of course,

Didi (59628) 2006-04-15 13:38
very nice landscape with a good lights.
The POV is well choosen; the tree mask the strong luminosity of the sky.
I think it's time for you to try some stiches with two pictures for a begining.
markstaples (15670) 2006-04-16 6:51
This is a truly wonderful view Fernando. The image is of a very good quality, is pinsharp and has wonderful colours. The composition and POV are strong. Very well done and thanks for sharing.

Bom dia Fernando :)
Fine view of this beautiful island. So crisp and detailed, so much to look at. Beautifully composed with the tree in front and a soft horizon. Congratulations to you! :)
jemaflor (91165) 2006-04-17 13:03
Lovely POV and nice landscape, very beautiful effect with these curves, well composed.
riclopes (35577) 2006-04-18 2:47
Bom fia Fernando,
Obrigado pela sua visita. De facto ainda estou a pôr ordem na casa e por isso ainda não tive tempo de postar.
Uma das coisas que me atraem nos Açores é a possibilidade de termos variadas vistas panorâmicas de cima, sempre com o mar como horizonte. Esta é outro exemplo disso, muito bem enquadrada pela árvore e hortenses em 1º plano e o simpático banco a convidar-nos para sentar e disfrutar da vista. Os campos em 2º plano, são muito interessantes, levando o nosso olhar, ao longo das suas linhas de arbustos, para a vista do Faial lá atrás. Excelente qualidade técnica e execução, como é habitual e a partilha de fotografias complementares em ws, que são sempre uma mais valia. Parabéns por mais esta(s) vistas!
Um abraço amigo,
anavazao (5592) 2006-04-18 5:05
bonitas ilhas com uma bonita vista! Vejo que a Primavera está ai a chegar! Bonitas cores, composição, POV e luz!
