Highland and south coast with Lajes do Pico

WI_api080.jpg

View from Pico Alto over the highland and the S slopes of Pico in E direction. The pastures and meadows dominating the foreground are very characteristic for the Azorean landscape. This image shows a common situation where humid air approaches the island from the N side, so that the S coast is dry and sunny due to foehn effects.
