Spain Photos - Travel & Fine Art
Atalis beach, also called Talis, is a pearl of southern Menorca. All Balearic Islands are known for their turquoise bays and picturesque cliffs, but it is Menorca that is Nico’s favorite photography subject.
The Balearic Islands are known for small, charming towns and fishing villages – such as Son Bou on Menorca. Most people know this place in daylight, however they and are not aware that at night from surroundings of the village one can see the Milky Way.
Favàritx Lighthouse is one of the most visited lighthouses on Menorca, maybe because of this out-of-this-world feeling which you have while standing on the lunar-like ground and seeing the white statue of the lighthouse created to rescue ships wrecking on the harsh coast of Menorca.
Favàritx Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse on Menorca. Before it was erected in 1922 many ships wrecked on the north-east shore of this Balearic Island in Spain. The Favàritx lighthouse stands 47 meters above sea level. The lighthouse itself is 28m high, but it is built on the cliffs which fall steeply into the sea.
Peñíscola, a small Spanish primary fishing village is located in the Costa Azahar – Orange Blossom Coast. It’s a great stop to visit when you’re travelling from Valencia to Barcelona.
Peniscola is the kind of town that is our favourite to visit. Beautiful with a rich history, but still not so much discovered by travellers and photographers. The Castle was built in the 13th century by Knights Templar. At some point, this Castle also became a house to Pope Benedict III.
Valencia Marina or as officially known, Juan Carlos 1 Marina, became famous because of America’s Cup to Valencia in 2007 and was also the time when it was renovated. The fame, after its restoration, not only drew in tourist’s but also historical vessels with a view that would please any boat-lover.
Walking in the Laurel Forest through Anaga Mountains is like going back in time. These various subtropical trees and plants on Tenerife, once covered the southern parts of Europe and northern Africa some 20,000 years ago. Unfortunately, the woodlands from the Tertiary period are very rare to find around the world.
Ever wondered what a bugloss is? A bugloss is a plant that is widespread on the island of Tenerife, in Spain. It usually grows up to approximately 3 meters in height and you can see it on Las Cañadas del Teide. I have always wanted to see them bloom in an inflamed red shade.
