Santiago | São Jorge dos Órgãos and Monte João Teves


View from the vicinity of Rui Vaz to São Jorge dos Órgãos and down the Ribeira de Gouvada in N direction. The pronounced peak in the right portion of the scene is Monte João Teves (755 m). Note that many steep slopes are used as farmland. 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.
