Port de Soller, Mallorca #6

Lighthouse at Port de Soller on the west coast of Mallorca

The story behind this image

Port de Soller, on the west coast of the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, is situated in a crescent shaped bay with a lighthouse at each tip.

The lighthouse pictured here is part of a military installation, and is inacessible for a close up view.

This photo was taken from the far side of the bay, next to the other lighthouse, and shows the dramatic limestone cliffs that make up this part of the coast.

The lighthouse and accompanying buildings didn't really stand out in the original colour file, but a conversion to monochrome, with some selective darkening and lightening of the scene, soon brought the image to life.
