Illuminated Mount Pico, Açores

f/1.8 | 30 sec | ISO-100 (of course you can click the image for a large version)

For the Weekly Photo Challenge this week I chose this photo of Mount Pico. I was supposed to post this earlier, but I forgot all about it. The photo was shot during one of my sleepless nights.

“Mount Pico (Portuguese: Montanha do Pico), is a stratovolcano and highest point on the Portuguese island of Pico in the Azores. Further, reaching an altitude of 2,351 metres above sea level, it is more than twice the elevation of any other peak in the Azores, and the tallest mountain in Portugal.” (Wikipedia)
