Islands in the Autumn

Mosteiros beach in rain. São Miguel Island.

Location: The summer was over and dark clouds from the western Atlantic appeared on the Azores skies. I stood that night taking photos in the rain, beaten by wind and waves. My camera and filters were soaking. But it was all worth it. Awarded the front page of Photographed at the beach of Mosteiros, Westernmost part of the São Miguel island, Azores, Portugal.
