Madeira Island, Portugal

Also known as the "Pearl of the Atlantic", with amazing and extreme landscapes, a wide variety of flora and fauna, and lovely food and wine! A 5 million year old island as result of Volcanic explosions, but discovered little over 500 years old by the Portuguese on their way to India. It remains widely untouched in its high peaks. A true photographic gem, but also the place I am proud to call "Home"!
