[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The spectacular view of the twin lakes of Seta Citades on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. One lake is blue and the other green. The lakes lie at the bottom of a huge volcanic crater at the western end of the island. Over thousands of years, the crater has filled with lush vegetation. The small town of Seta Citades is to the left of the shot on the shore of the far lake. You can also see the sea behind the crater on the left.

We were lucky to visit on the clear day. Often there is so much low cloud that the lakes are invisible from the edge of the crater.

Hello Joy, nice to see you here once again and with an amazing view!
Excellent DoF and from a great PoV.
The hydrangeas in the fg make a beautiful frame for your scene.
One to be proud of!
Regards Jean.

Hi Joy
Absolutely beautiful image. Multiple tones of green, a blue sky, and in the fg the blue flowers - Wow. Excellent!

Hello Joy

Looks like paradise. A beautiful scene captured before us. I like the foreground with the beautiful vegetation. WOW Picture postcard here for sure.


Hi Joy,
Nice to some more pictures of the Azores. I visited this place over 10 years ago and still am impressed with its beauty. My latest vist was to the island of Faial. Certain a recommended visit as well. You created a great composition, with the wonderful flowers in the fg and the different colored lakes. It also shows the caldera perfectly.
Maybe the white balance is a little on the warm side.
