[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last year I visited the island of Faial, one of the nine inhabited islands of the Azores. Unfortunately I was not able to climb down into the caldera to see the endemic plant life, but I did walk the entire rim having a magnificent view of the entire island but also the island of Pico, Sao Jorge and Graciosa.

The caldera is 400 meters deep and 2 kilometers wide. The walk, which in some places was pretty tough was about 10K.

This is a stitch of 6 photos.

What a great place to visit and to climb down to see what is in and around the water! Great picture, thank you for sharing it. Saludos.

Hi Niek, Really cool shot of this magnificent place. It looks similar to Ngorongoro crater in Africa.
