Wonderful point of view on this vertiginous place .
Very nice light and colors .

You must be going after these wide-open ocean vistas wherever you visit. Always appealing and impressive. So you had both the polarizer and the neutral grad filter? Not sure about the utility of the latter in this case as the contrast seems manageable. No tripod? Hoşçakal,

nice to see all the series of the Madeira Iland..
very beautiful view of this open sea against the green coast... and there are houses in the border!
great colors, POV and sharpness.

I'd love to visit all those islands (Madeira, Açores, Canárias...). Maybe one day...
While this doesn't happen, I enjoy seeing pictures like this one: incredibly beautiful scenery!
TFS - Congratulations!
Greetings from Brazil,

What a wonderful viewpoint!
After the initial assessment of the upper regions, the eyes literally speed down the hilside, following the lines of the almost sheer face, until thet reach the surf and the sea.
The composition is very good having a diagonal from corner to opposite corner!
The light is lovely creating a whole range of tonal greens.

An impressive high pov with an expansive view along the coastline. Good sharpness & dominance of the green colour at left, contrasting against the blue sea & sky at right. Tfs!

This is a wonderful view taken on a very clear day. The light is superb and the colours look very real. I also like a lot the sky and the clouds.

dramatic place. Excellent POV and the quality and colours are fantastic, like always.

Long time I did not look at your pictures and in here I really like the captivating light which adds more value to this impressive view from a great POV.
All the best

Yamacın yemyeşil dokusuyla denizin masmavi enginliği birbirlerini çok güzel tamamlamış. Sahilde kırılan beyaz dalgalar ve bulutlar da kompozisyona derinlik ve zenginlik katmışlar. Tebrikler.

Amazing view with spectacular POV. Picturesque and romantic country, great colours and clarity as usual. Very well done! Have a nice evening
vincz (19113) 2008-06-02 4:18
Great POV above the cliff. I like to see the houses way below near the see and the feeling of immensity with the misty atmosphere at the horizon.
ktanska (25337) 2008-06-02 5:17
Light and shadows create strong sense of 3D on this extremely green and still steem mountain face. There's something special on those rocks that keep moisture and and make plants grow on almost vertical rock faces. Tiny buildings next to the sea give idea of the height.
chpp (4281) 2008-06-02 6:45
I like how you captured all the details in this cliff. the roads, the crest of the waves
very nice light and colours
and good compo
albertz (2468) 2008-06-02 19:37
I feel like i'm standing on this mountaintop and all my senses come into play, i can almost hear, smell and feel it. Excellent shot.
alibasarir (15580) 2008-06-03 3:59
yeşil yamaçlar ve kıyıya vuran dalgalar nefis görünüyor.ayrıca arka planda bulutlu gökyüzü ve derinlikte çok güzel.
stego (24030) 2008-06-03 9:36
The amazing POV and the well rendered colours that make the image so eye catching don't surprise me much coming from you and knowing the place, but I am amazed how you managed to light so well having the sun low almost in front.
kevinos (7403) 2008-06-06 19:16
Wonderful, sharp detail here, Tan and good rendition of the tones and colours. It is a ine record of a lovely place . regards kevin
pboehringer (770) 2008-06-09 10:45
the perfect place in the vertiginous heights to catch that last light providing maximal contrast and color renditions of the cliffs covered with vegetation and the little town at the shore.
pablominto (53744) 2008-06-09 22:24
I like this point of view, showing the drama in this landscape well!
The houses along the shore give good scaling to the scenery, and the surf adds life...
Good colours and details, the fine cloud formations are well exposed!
Ladycat (287) 2008-06-21 5:38
I love how you captured this beautiful grand landscape.
TFS such an excellent composition.

Que foto linda!
Este verde musgo das montanhas chama a atenção.O cenário é mesmo belíssimo...parabéns, ótimo ponto de vista.

Hi Tan, fantastic capture of this beautiful scene. You always seem to seek out the best POV in a lot of your shots, worth the climb no doubt. I am seriously thinking of heading to Portugal soon. Best Regards Steve.

Magnificient lights on the mountain, terrific view from your nice dominant point of view and the luminosity is very appreciable.
