Porto Christo, Mallorca #4

Rocks and headland at Porto Christo, Mallorca

The story behind this image

When my family and I decided to spend a couple of hours enjoying the beach and sea at the lovely seaside resort of Porto Christo on the east coast of Mallorca I didn't realise just how muich photographic potential I'd stumbled across as well.

Even though it was mid afternoon on a bright, sunny day, a twist of the polariser made those Mediterranean colours pop in my viewfinder, and I had to discipline myself not to just photograph everything in sight, but instead to make a concious effort to craft images rather than just blast away taking snapshots.

So, having taken a deep breath to calm down, I set off in pursuit of meaningful compositions.

I've always found that triangles make for a strong image, so I was particularly pleased when, after a bit of clambering on slippy rocks, I found this view, composed almost exclusively of triangles.

Just for a laugh - how many can you count?
