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.

Capturing this photo was much like meditation to me, as the colours of the sunrise brilliantly contrasted the sea with great detail, the limestones of the cliff were striking, and the lighthouse was glowing in a bright catchy orange. The Lighthouse at Cabo de Cavalleria is one of the symbols of Menorca. It has protected sailors from crashing their ships on the rocky coasts of Menorca, since 1897. Looking on at this composition, I had a thought that since that period, the surroundings had remained unchanged, though decades had passed.
