"Ilha da montanha". Island of mountains. With its particularly steep terrain, this is what is nicknamed the island of Santo Antao in Cape Verde. So beautiful landscape !

Des images d'une grande beauté et qui font vraiment plaisir à contempler, à s'échapper du quotidien froid, pluvieux, neigeux, etc.
Merci pour ce partage apprécié.

Hello Jean,
What an amazing landscape, the shapes of the mountains are fantastic and I like their colours a lot too, the green tones and the brown-reddish earth go really well together. The strong light added such a beautiful haze over the landscape too. Very well captured from a great vantage point.

Bonjour Jean,

Les montagnes cadrent bien la maison. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la maison et des montagne. J'apprécie l'effet de la brume de chaleur sur les couleurs. Bonne journée.

An excellent composition and nice presentation.

Dear Jean!
Superb landscape.
Amazing delicate haze.
Nice lightness and colours.
Good bright and shadow.
Perfect contrast.
What a beautiful work.
Well done!

Bonjour Jean,

WOW, tu as été très chanceux, ou encore tu as fait ta chance pour trouver un endroit aussi beau, ensoleillé à souhaits mais avec une petite brume sur les montagnes qui adoucit l'agressivité des rochers.

Bonjour Jean

You get a real sense of depth here, almost vertigo of fear from falling into the ravines. Great light and superb red colours too.


Hi Jean
so these buildings, are they homes? do people actually live way up here? whats going on? love the terrain, it belongs in some sort of Hollywood movie. awesome ruggedness.

Ciao Jean
non ricordo di aver mai visto un paesaggio simile a questo, le punte delle montagne sono aguzze e il colore del terreno ha delle tonalità rosse molto evidenti.
Ottima condivisione, non credo che se ne vedano molte di queste foto.


A real treat to see this topography with vivid colors and saturation. The residence here have it made. Looks very peaceful.


Dobar dan.
Lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Dobar rad sa lepim fotografijama u radionici, lepo pokazano, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje.
Lepo drvece i planina, lepa priroda.
Zelim vam lep dan, sve najbolje.

Good day.
Nice view, good text ...
Good work with nice photos in the workshop, beautifully shown, good perspective and contrast, beautiful colors.
Nice trees and mountains, beautiful nature.
I wish you a nice day, all the best.

Bonjour Jean,
Les pics aigus qui deviennent plus flou dans le lointain forment une vue magnifique.
Un vrai paradis pour les randonneurs.
Le sol rouge offre un beau contraste de couleur avec la végétation.
Amicalement, Paul

hello Jean, I haven't realized that Cape Verde has such magnificent mountain landscapes. Awesome composition. and how you get so high? Spectacular view.

Kind regrad s Malgo

Bonjour Jean,
Excellent depth and the light and shadows cast brout out a marvelous sight with fine DOF.
You just did not managed to drive the mist away... as tourists we can't control the weather.
The ruins are an eyes catching object.
Au revoir,

Hello Jean
A fascinating landscape with all these sharp top in this mysterious steep landscape. Interesting to see the meeting of the wildness of nature and human activity united in this scene.
Excellent work. Have a nice day, groet Rob

Hello Jean

A spectacular mountain view with wonderful tonal and textural nuances and what look like terraces in parts. Perfect sharpness and high pov. Tfs!

Hello Jean,
Yes, this rugged terrain is very photogenic. I like the primitive structures in your frame, especially the one that looks like an archaeological dig.
