[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On an early rise to capture the city of Horta during the blue hour, I decided to stay and wait of some of the heavy clouds would break and allow the sun to show her magic. It took a little while, but eventually the sun was producing some wonderful golden rays through the gabs in the cloud cover.

In the front you see a typical rural landscape of Faial and in the distance you can see part of its neighboring island Pico.

Hi Niek,
You were patiently waiting for the sunshine - but got even a more spectacular scene. :-) Besides the fantastic sunrays I love the way you used the 3 layers (ground, sea, sky) on the photo. Masterful artwork even without real sunshine. Bravo!
Best regards, László

Hello Niek, patience will bring rewards in the end! And here you have the evidence.
Excellent DoF, with a very clear fg.I hope that the sun's rays brought a good day.
Regards Jean.

Hi, Niek. Love the golden rays touching the ocean through the clouds. Nice composition with the house in the foreground, excellent clarity and colors of this peaceful scene. Cheers.

I love the positioning of this shot, the home, the coastline and the sky work as one.
The beams of light are a joy.

Really magic, and see several seasons at same time: wintery on foreground, stormy in background, and still have sunshine !
At the same time you still have a colorful scenery!

Hello Niek.
Great landscpe shot with lovely soft colors, and amazing sky and golden rays, well done.
Regards Robert.
