Lighthouse | Menorca, Spain

Menorca Lighthouse - Cap de Cavallería sunset shots on PhotoPills Camp.

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. During a particular session, we visited Cap de Cavallería Lighthouse for sunset shooting.

While searching for the perfect spot, I entered a dark cave. Upon turning to see the view of the lighthouse from my position, I saw that the dark walls of the cave had suddenly become bright.  For a brief moment, the setting sun had enlightened the walls and given a warm glow. This did not last very long – I had just enough time to capture the photo. Seconds after the sun had set, the cave was dark once again.

Sometimes I say that fate is evident – especially so for photographers. After shooting this photograph I thought about my other lucky moments – for example when lightning struck The Berlin Tower and I was able to capture it just in the nick of time. Another moment was when a single strand of light crossed my lens while I was shooting a photo of Frankfurt Am Main panorama which once taken, beautifully looked like a light explosion over the city.

Yes, it’s apparent that fate and instinct are evident in photography.

My goal is always to create the best possible and most exciting photos to do justice to the places where they’ve been taken.

Maybe this place evokes some good memory for you?

Or it's a place which you always dreamed to be one day?

I wish a high-quality print of my photo will bring you a feeling of being there at any time!
