CABO GIRAO is a lofty sea cliff in the southern coast of Madeira. A diamond-shaped sea-cliff escarpment from 560 to 589 metres above sea level, Cabo Girão lies between two river-valleys that flow into the Atlantic. There are terraced fields (Fajãs de Cabo Girão) located below the shear cliffs, only accessible by boat or cable car.

Like 31 for this view from above.

Great idea and shot! I did something like that in Capri (see, but I copied the idea..:) from a book of a famous italian fotografo, Fulvio Roiter.

Cheers from Rome. P.S.: I added you gallery to my favourites!
