This setting – Cap de Farvàritx 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.
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.
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.
