Return to Corvo, This is my sixth visit to Corvo and the fourth in October. I thought id publish a few of my favorite photo's of the island.
Corvo from the Sky
From the Sea
Crater lake always reminds me of the "Death Star"
Crater lake, a different view
Lighthouse Valley, this is one of the few actual valleys on the island.
A rugged coastline
The platform of Vila do Novo from the sky
Sunset over an Azorean Sea
Corvo back in the day, 1970 actually,Look at the Islands housing then, the area of fields and the lack of runway. I took this photo from an old photo hanging up on the wall of Vickie's(The Islands Hairdresser)I have never had a haircut before where you get given a slice of cake and a cup of tea after for free after.! Result! "Eat your heart out Cream Tea Birding!"
Corvo now in 2009, sporting a new runway and new housing.
This picture is great and gives a true understanding of exactly what Corvo is, Basically, a Volcanic Island, sticking out of the Sea, Isolated, Barren, wild, unique and situated in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean......
