Santiago | Mountain landscape near São Domingos


Panoramic view from the road to Monte Tchota in SE direction down to the Ribeira de São Domingos on the left side of the scene. Note that many steep slopes are used for agriculture. However, the lush green in the mountains of Santiago only persists for few months each year. After the short rainy season, colours quickly turn to yellowish and brownish in October or November, and remain so until the following August.
