The Fire Lake by Inebriantia The Fire Lake by Inebriantia
The Fire Lake


This photo was taken on one of the islands of the magical and gorgeous Azores. I went to the S. Miguel Island on a job assignment (workshop), and free time was scarce. Fortunately, me and a group of friends managed to arrange a 4 hours car travel through the island, and what a feast for the eyes that trip was! This is, in my opinion, along with S. Jorge, the most beautiful island in Azores. Breathtaking landscapes are around every corner. One thing is for sure... I must return there soon!


The depicted lake is located on the top of a volcanic mountain, and it's called Lagoa do Fogo (Fire Lake). It's the 2nd largest lake of the island, and it's located 575 metres high.


Shot with my Pentax K10d, Sigma 10-20, and 3 stop ND Grad filter. Tweaked levels, curves, noise reduction, and final sharpening was applied.

Local fantástico!

Se existe um local onde gostaria de ir era aos Açores, tem paisagens espectaculares e este é um bom exemplo disso :)

Bom trabalho :)

Ui ui... Infelizmente apenas tivémos 3 horas para percorrer a ilha, porque o resto do tempo foi ocupado pelo congresso.

Pensar em "lua cheia" + "lagoa do fogo" é assim qualquer coisa de surreal!

Fotão amigo... uma das minhas viagens de sonho. Pelo menos a nivel fotográfico. A tua foto está muito boa! Tanto o detalhe como a composição em si. Cores, as plantas em 1º plano...

Parabéns por mais um belo trabalho.

Obrigado! :) Foi uma viagem muito frenética de 3 horas, e o tempo pra disparar em cada zona foi pouco. Aquelas plantinhas ali no foreground salvaram a composição, e esta foi uma das escolhidas pra submeter. :)

Abraço!
