Renato Goulart, a well-known Pico tour guide who has climbed the mountain hundreds of times, shared the impressive images on Facebook.
In addition to the images, he also shared several videos where it is possible to see not only the island of Pico but also Faial and São Jorge.
The mountain on the island of Pico was formed around 750,000 years ago, from a volcano that emerged from the depths of the ocean. It has an altitude of over 5,000 metres and is not only the highest mountain in Portugal, but also the youngest in the country.
The highest mountain on Pico Island has 2351 m above sea level, not 5000 m as listed in your article

Thank you Jan, I thought 5,000m mountain in the Azores was a bit on the high side - my wife asked if we could go skiing in the Azores!
