~ Cape Green ~ by DavidGomes1

The original name of Cape Verde (Cabo Verde) is coming from “Cap Vert” in Senegal, really green place!
But the really moment that Cape Verde is “Cape Green” is during rainy season where the landscapes are really beautiful as you can see in this shot.

This is one more shot from my series Magic Lands- Dam Figueira Gorda!
Have a nice week!
Enjoy and vote!

~The Majestic ~ by DavidGomes1

Sunset from The Majestic volcano of Fogo (fire) island!
After 20 years sleeping, in November last year “The Majestic” suddenly began with a strong eruption that lasted almost one month!
It rises to nearly 3,000 meters (10,000 feet) above sea level at its summit, Pico do Fogo.

~ Big “S” ~ by DavidGomes1

One more shot from my series Magic Lands!
Today we have a fews dams and we are in rainy season where the landscapes are really beautiful.
But the most important in this shot is a composition and lighting.
It was very difficult (hard) to get a vision angle to have the big letter “S”.
“S” of “Saquinho” the name of this dam.
For this, I walked over an hour crossing “river bank” and climbing mountains.
Please enjoy and voting!
