Today a foto of a part of 'Sierra de Tramontana', a serie of mountains that surround Valldemossa, at the northwest of Palma de Mallorca island. This mountain range has as highest points: Puig Mayor (1445 mts), Puig de Masanella (1364 mts) and Puig Tomir (1102 mts). Other small villages and town enclosed by this moutain range are: Andrach, Fornalutx, Deya, Escorca, Pollensa, Soller, among others.
The town from where I took this picture is Vealdemossa, as I said on previous posts, is one of the most charming places of Palma de Mallorca Islands, with it's typical stone houses and narrow streets. As per the last senses Valldemossa is estimated to have 1910 inhabitants, but surely is visited by several hundreds of thousand during the whole year, such is the movement at Palma's airport.
There are surely several ways of appreciate this mountain range but surely two of the bests are by the wooden train from Palma to Soller, and the other one is by car through the sinuous road that crosses it from one side to the other.
For those who are planning to make a tryp to Mallorca this part of the Island is a great point of interest which I recommend.
I hope you enjoy the view...

Hello Paulo, estas montanhas bem como esta aldeia devolvida quase invisíveis cercada que quase está pela vegetação, e este enquadramento é ele completamente originais, que faz-me pensar à maqueta de comboio em modelo reduzido, a vista é excelentes até fazem-no da imagem, e cada árvores visíveis libertadas de qualquer hortaliça, são de uns uns bonitos efeitos, bem cordialmente

I like this place Paulo. I think you could show more the mountain of the right side. Or descenter the mount on the middle of the photo.
I like the colors besides it's a little overexposed.

A great view! I would like to be there now - here it's raining. I like the swung line of the horizon very much - and it was taken on my birthday! ;-)
Thank you for showing -and greetings from Germany!

Gosto desse enquadramento criando forte perspectiva da bela e interessante formação natural desta agradável composição.

Muito bonita esta vista da Serra Tramontana.
Gosto do "recorte"v dos montes contra o azul do céu.
As cores estão muito bonitas.

Hi Paulo, this is a pretty countryside scene. I like the diagonal line of the mountainside interupted by the rocky peak pointing skywards. The buildings make an attractive addition to the foreground.
