Santa Ponca, Mallorca #1

Two islands at Santa Ponca, Mallorca

The story behind this image

Santa Ponca is one of the more heavily developed seaside resorts on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, although you would have no idea this was the case from just looking at this image.

This is one of those instances where less is definately more, as with careful zooming and cropping (and a bit of cloning) I was able to exclude everything that offended my artistic sensibilities from this composition, just leaving the two offshore islands and blanket of cloud for a simple and pleasing final image.
