São Miguel Island - July 2010 ( day 1)
A story behind: Last week while visiting again the island I learned how highly unpredictable the weather can be on the Azores Islands in late June. It was cold and gloomy and wet and windy. So I stood there with a camera hidden under the anti-moisture cap waiting for the right moment. But it wasn´t a waste of time. The scenery over the Fire Lake was constantly changing. To have more fun I observed the poor tourists who were getting out of their cars in Bermuda shorts and T-shirts to take a picture of the lake and after a second they were back in their cars shaking and trembling with cold.
So I stood there almost an hour waiting and waiting....but not in vein. Finally the light concert has begun.
