Whaling station in Porto Pim and Mount Pico

Now a museum, the whaling station of Porto Pim is located on Faial Island, Azores. At sunrise, I first got very excited because of the nice light, to then feel a little disappointed because I was hoping to capture the entire Mount Pico in the background. Funnily enough, in the end my feelings about the image changed again after reading a comment of my good friend and great photographer Luciano Catozzi, who pointed out the picture is much more intriguing the way it is, with just a hint of Mount Pico peeping out from behind the clouds. This shot of the Fábrica da Baleia de Porto Pim is therefore dedicated to Luciano.
