All images of this gallery were taken between June 3 and June 16 2018 on São Miguel (Azores, Portugal). For artistic reasons (I believe that photos should speak for themselves) no captions are displayed together with the images, but by holding your mouse over the thumbnails for a second you should get a brief title caption displayed as a popup-tooltip.
All images were taken with a Sony HX9V compact camera (which comprises a 24-384mm optical zoom range (in 35mm equivalent)).
I split the photos into themed portfolios of 6 images each as follows:
