A sunny day on the Sao Miguel island

A mid-day light over the northern coast of the São Miguel island, Azores Islands, Portugal.

A story behind: It was Friday mid-day. I was sight-seeing the northern coast of São Miguel, the major island in the Azores archipelago. As I drove past the small village of Capelas, I came upon the nice view over the bay the roofs of the church of Capelas in the foreground. On the horizon, covered with clouds, the Lagos do Fogo volano appeared.
