Lighthouse at Cabo de Cavalleria, Menorca during a sunrise, Spain.

Lighthouse at Cabo de Cavalleria | Menorca, Spain

Cabo de Cavalleria is the northern headland of the Menorca island. During the spring months, you can observe the sun rising just behind the cliffs and the lighthouse which stands almost on the edge of the coast and the sea. The lighthouse was built on the tallest cliff in the Cabo de Cavalleria headland and in total, stands at 94 meters over sea level, which makes the emanating light visible from the sea, even at a great distance. The light from the lighthouse flashes twice every ten seconds when the night comes.

When I saw this limestone formation on the Menorca island, I immediately thought that this arch had to have been formed by human hand – this shape could be perfectly used as a guarded gate to an ancient port. In reality, Pont d’en Gil, as it is called in the native language, is a rock formation made fully by the forces of nature.

Of all the places we’ve seen in Menorca, this was one of my favorites. This is a piece on Menorca, where we shot star trails during the night along with other PhotoPills Camp members. Without any doubt, this spot is as stunning during the night, as it is during the day and the sunset is remarkable. Somehow, this picturesque view has become the icon of Menorca.

As everyone may already be aware, photography takes a lot of preparation and arrangement. Sometimes though, it’s all about the luck in being at the right place, at the right minute and then capturing the moment as quickly as possible. This was the case with this photograph of Cap de Cavallería on Menorca. This is my first photo of a lighthouse and during the PhotoPills Photography Camp session, I experienced several first timer photo taking.

Star Trails | Menorca, Spain

This shot comes from the stunning Menorca – one of the Balearic Islands. The interesting thing is that I’ve never tried shooting star trails before! I saw this kind of photography before, but somehow in Berlin and in cities where I have traveled as such shots like these just didn’t work for me and for one simple reason – the skyline over these cities is “polluted” by artificial light. Therefore, if you want top results when photo taking, it is best to do so mainly in remote areas.
