Serra de Tramuntana, Mallorca #4

Narrow tunnel 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 isn't for those of a nervous disposition.

This narrow cleft is on the Ma-2141 as it winds its way down from the heights through seemingly endless hairpin bends to the quiet seaside resort of sa Calobra on the western coast.

Fortunately there was a handy lay-by just up the road so we could stop for me to take this photo, otherwise stopping for photography on this road would be out of the question.
