Pico's volcano, Azores

The Azores are, like the Canary Islands and Madeira, located in the Atlantic, off the coast of Africa. Less visited than their neighbouring island groups, they have an unspoilt beauty of their own. Island hopping is the best way to enjoy their varied delights.

The main feature of the island of Pico is its dramatic volcanic cone. I liked the contrast of the rock behind and the tree in front.
