The Azores

Loving this surreal black and white photography captured by Arnaud Bathiard, a self-taught photographer from Burgundy, France. The Azores, an autonomous region of Portugal, are most commonly characterized by dramatic landscapes, fishing villages, and green pastures gratefully salvaged from mass tourism. He's done an excellent job of capturing the subtleties of the area by utilizing long exposures to unveil the beauty and calmness of the region.
