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.
