Photographer's Note

Levada das 25 Fontes, Rabaçal.

Rabaçal is the starting point for several nice walks in the heart of the Madeiran forest. We can access to two spectacular sites, Risco waterfall and 25 Fountains (25 Fontes in Portuguese). It takes about 4 hours walk to bind both sites and return to the starting point.

A wide path along a levada leads to the impressive waterfall of Risco . After coming partially back to our way , our group then engaged in the direction of 25 fountains. The path becomes more narrow , so much that in some places , it was difficult to cross. After a sometimes aerial route , we reached the final waterfall, much less high than the Risco but very harmonious with the small lake at its foot.

The lack of space didn’t allow me to take the entire waterfall in one shot , this picture is a collection of 56 photos . Nearly three hours were necessary to my computer for matching them all together with Autostitch !
