Photographer's Note

It´s been two months since I deleted all my images here, mainly because a lot of long time members left that I became good friends with. I uploaded some images on flickr, but quickly realized that this community is just far too big for my taste, really nothing personal anymore. So after more than two months I decided to come back here, mainly because of the people on this site. I will of course not spend as much time here as I did before, but I´m of course looking forward to seing all your nice images!

Cape de Formentor
Cap de Formentor is a spectacular bluff, located on the northernmost point of the Balaeric Island Majorca. Its highest point, Fumart, is 384m above sea level. It has many associated bays, including Cala Fiquera, Cala Murta and Cala Pi de la Posada.

The 13.5 km street which runs from Port de Pollenca to Cap de Formentor was built by the Italian engineer Antonio Paretti. His masterpiece on Majorca, however, was the snake to Sa Calobra. Instead of being overwhelmed by what stood in his way on the cliffs, Parretti observed the Tramuntana winds and understood: where the slope was too steep, he made a curve. When he had to remove part of the cliffs, he placed the waste in other places where it was needed. The result was the two streets, which like are nestled together in the mountains like abandoned silk ribbons.

Hope you like it and thanks for viewing!
