Wow! This is pretty and a very nice photo! This mountain is more than twice as high as table mountain (see sunset photo of Table Mountain in my gallery!) Kind Regards! Johan Cape Town

Hi, Johan, I'm glad you like this photo. You can believe it: It's is more spectacularly, to stand on the summit of Pico instead of seeing the summit ;-))

Hi Sig, thank you very much for your information, really!

It seems, you like volcanoes?

Incidentally: On the top of Pico some stones are still warm.

Thanks ditzi I can´t say I like volcanos, but coming from an island with many active volcanos I respect them. If I plan to go on foot on top of a volcano I always think! How long is it since last eruption, when will the next one happen?? :).

Like this one; Hekla will blow soon

Greetings from Iceland
