Azorean patchwork


The Azores are a group of islands located off the coast of Portugal. Often dubbed the ‘Hawaii of the Atlantic’, this volcanic group of islands are covered with lush greenery and compelling landscapes. 

Terceira is one of the islands in the Azores and has a strong agricultural background. From various viewpoints around the island, I often stopped to admire the patchwork of fields marked out by low stone walls and variations in the colour and texture of the crops planted. 

As with any European country, there is a lot of history on these islands. Driving around, this was demonstrated with countless little ruins such as this stone hut in the field. Often a newer building would be butted up right next to an older ruin from a previous generation (no doubt to make use of an existing stone wall), but this little hut was on its own.

As I often do with this kind of image, I’ve chosen to use a shallower depth of field to mildly isolate the ruined hut as an object of interest against the background.
