Kellie Netherwood Photography | EUROPE - The Azores

The Azores is a Portuguese archipelago of nine volcanic islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Europe lies to the west (about 1,500km from Lisbon) and North America lies to the east (about 4,000 km to New York).

Perfect for photographers, hikers and general lovers of the great outdoors, the Azores offer a number of activities and highlights that seems out of proportion with the size and tranquillity of these picturesque islands.

During my visit in 2014, I spent time on two of the islands - Sao Miguel and Faial.
