Balearic islands: Menorca Favàritx Lighthouse; Spain

The Favàritx Lighthouse | Menorca, Spain

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 | Menorca, Spain

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.

Peniscola with the Castle, during summer holidays in Spain.

Peniscola Castle | Peniscola, Spain

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.

Path through Laurel Forest on Anaga Mountains in Tenerife, Spain

Laurel Forest on Anaga Mountains | Tenerife, Spain

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.

Bugloss on Teide Mountain | Tenerife, Spain

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.

Earthshine – reflecting light from the Earth onto the moon. As seen from Spain.

Earthshine | Menorca, Spain

Earthshine is nothing more than the sun’s light reflecting on the Earth, which then replicates back onto the moon. This part of the moon then begins to glow on one side for just a little moment. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does after a sunset, be sure to take a photo of it!

Tube light painting in Menorca, Spain.

Capturing light painting | Menorca, Spain

These photos are real and were taken on this planet if you were thinking otherwise! This tube light painting was something very new to me. Before PhotoPills on Menorca, I probably wouldn’t have had any idea as to how it would work and how much fun it would make!

Sanisera and Sa Nitja archaeological site on Menorca, Spain.

Sanisera and Sa Nitja | Menorca, Spain

On this particular evening, there was a stunning sunset that we enjoyed. The old surrounding ruins, the boat sitting on the calm water and the ruins of the British Tower can all be seen on the horizon in perfect distance from one another, creating a remarkable view. With one shot, I captured this mix of sights that history shaped on the natural port of Sa Nitja. Sanisera and Sa Nitja are now archaeological sites.
