Photographer's Note

Pico Ruivo with 1862 metters high is the thirdest tall mountain in Portugal and is located in the Madeira Island.
There are 2 ways up there and both on foot, one is from Achada do Teixeira (2.8km) and the harder one from Pico do Areeiro (5.2 or 7km).
This day i tooked the short way and had to cross the clouds to get there, i was affraid of the lack of visibility up there... but it turned great when being above the white clouds :)
There are some vegetation at the top with twisted branches due to the wind blowing direction.
At the left you can see a little of the balcony fence located at the top for sightseeing safety.
