Serra de Tramuntana, Mallorca #2

Decayed bar sign in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, Mallorca

The story behind this image

Driving around the Serra de Tramuntana mountains on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, Liz and I stopped at a dilapidated bar for refreshments.

While Liz bought the drinks I took the opportunity to wander around, camera in hand, looking for photo opportunities.

Well I didn't have to look far, as this decaying old sign for the the bar we'd stopped at was right there by the side of the road.

With its weatherbeaten texture and fading red paint it was an obvious candidate for a spot of photography, especially with the deep blue (polarised) sky behind, and the mountains in the background.

Just a lovely view, and the drinks weren't half bad either!
