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.
Porto Felgueiras Lighthouse is located on the Douro mouth, just before the river enters the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the closeness of the ocean, it often caused the waves to become enormous.
This setting – Cap de Favàritx is located on the north-east side of Menorca in the “Parc Natural de S’Albufera des Grau”. This part of the coast is known for both sandy beaches and impressive rock formations. The lighthouse in this image is a little difficult to see in the background, but it stands at 47 meters over sea level and it sends the light at a range of 16 nautical miles.
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.
The waves on this particular day were enormous. We watched in awe; hypnotised with the rhythms from our restaurant view. When I was walking around the open pools at sunset, I saw a family standing under the Bajamar’s lighthouse. It was one of those magical moments, which screamed an immediate capture.
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.
The remains of The Archaeological Park in Paphos (also known as The Ketos Archaeological Park) dates back to the 4th Century BC. This was when the last King of Paphos Nicocles built “Nea Paphos” – a new city. Today, the park is a UNESCO World Heritage and during our stay, was a paradise display in my camera’s eyes.
