A week in Madeira has been a kaleidoscope of fascinating images. The terrace farming, abandoned terraces, and the stark ravines of the interior spoke of another life which found an outlet in the Mercado Lavradores. And then there were the tourists.  And overall the rainbows. I hope these few pictures capture something of what I saw, and felt.

The Botanic Gardens were amazing.

The Blandy Gardens were beautiful, even in the rain – incredibly lush and luxurious –  providing a startlingly ‘English’ picture of the Island.
