[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
No macro, no butterfly, no insect - this time, but a fascinating landscape:

This is a view from Pico Arieiro, about 1800m, into the rugged and often cloudy mountains of the interior of Madeira Island.
The wind in this place is often very strong and thus there is an interesting and spectacular dynamic of the clouds.
The picture changes from one second to another. Suddenly, you have a deep view downwards disappearing in the next moment and allowing a view on several summits and steep rocks.
I walked with my son from here to the highest mountain of Madeira, Pico Ruivo. The views from the narrow paths were very impressive and spectacular.
