Photographer's Note

As soon as I realized that taking blue hour photos may be my only chance to have some photographic fun on the cloudy and rainy Madeira, I tried to look for the best points of view around Funchal.
The first viewpoint which internet named as having the best view of Funchal was Pico do Barcelos. It was just few minutes by car from my hotel, so it was an obvious choice. I stopped there shortly during the day, but the dull rainy sky made the photos quite terrible. The viewpoint was also quite distant from the city. From that distance there was nothing characteristic at all to catch the attention, nothing really to use in the foreground neither as it was all paved. I had rented car for two days only and since both were rainy, I decided to return to Pico do Barcelos for the blue hour. It was exactly as I expected, of course at the blue hour the 360 view was spectacular and quite romantic, but it was hard to capture in an interesting way. Nevertheless, I wanted to share with you a fragment of this stunning view.
