Photographer's Note

Madeira's been on my wish list since ... forever, before I visited it in the spring of 2014. It's a strange island, green and lush, but not quite tropical, in Europe, but not quite, Portuguese, but something more. A rock in the ocean, full of green gardens, and is it turns out nice people.

This photo is from Sao Vicente on the northern side of the island, perhaps not the best from Madeira, but it represents the island well I think. Rugged mountains falling into the raging ocean before. Sao Vicente is gorgeous, but I definitely would not recommend it for swimming. :)

Thanks for seeing and reading
