Azores archipelago is located 3000 km of the coast of Europe in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It takes 2 hours long flight to get there from Portugal and 4 hours to fly from Northern America. This is a kind of the “forgotten land”.
I have spent many mornings and evenings photographing São Miguel island coastline, and in this book I share my favorite locations, some of which would be extremely difficult to locate without assistance.
This guide is intended for tourists and photographers of all skill levels, starting from curious tourists throughout intermediate photographers up to professionals. The guide might be a perfect solution for people who are unfamiliar with the area and who want to achieve as much as possible during the limited time they spend on the islands.
