Thanks for sharing these excellent images Ronny. It looks like a very rugged landscape, with fabulous opportunities for hiking. And the view from your hotel room looks superb!

What an awesome location! I love the above the clouds photo - very cool and it gives me some different ideas on how to approach a similar shot (when the San Joaquin Valley is fogged in and I'm standing on a mountain above it all). Your picture is better than anything I've managed, your viewpoint is much better. But my favorite is the picture of Funchal at night.

thanks, and those hiking opportunities are even better with the 'levadas' they have. Levada's are small canals they've made around the mountain to transport the water from the wet north to the super dry south.
Those levada's all have walkway's beside them and are a marvelous way to visit the island. Only I don't side, we didn't have enough time to do one

But we'll be going back

Thanks Harriet,
I've always been searching for this type op shots, when in mountains. And Madeira was a dream for them. One side of the island is almost always covered with clouds.

And for the picture of Funchal, we were lucky to be staying on the 11flour and have such a great view. 11the flour was the 5the flour above the reception... the 6th,5th,4...1st all had exits on the street, that wound around the hotel.

Ah, I love the mixture of some mountains, the sea/ocean and the somewhat rugged-looking nature.

Thanks for sharing.
