Port de Soller Lighthouse
Port de Soller is a tourist resort which curves round a natural harbour surrounded by mountains. This is one of few safe havens for sailors seeking refuge on the north coast of Mallorca, and the spectacular nature of the bay can be fully appreciated by taking a boat trip from the port. There is a lighthouse on each side of the bay entrance and this one was captured at sunset.

Really nice one here. Your usual excellence of composition but it's nice to see a somewhat frozen water image. Great colour!

Almost a painting

What a great picture!
This one looks like a picture. Really painted.
Colours are stunning and the composition is fabulous.
One more - this one attracted me to other your photos, you have unbelievable colours in them, and sharpness is superb.
You are really good.
Greetings from Poland, Anna

Hello Stephen ,
What an incredible sharpness ! The composition is excellent ,too . I like a lot the black and white light house , in the soft orange sky .

Impressive and romantic seaside scene with gentle touch of last light making your picture pink and tender.
It seems Mallorca was a good choice for holiday :-).

This is a great sunset shot of this fine lighthouse. The lighting and colors are outstanding as is the sharpness and DOF. Your composition is outstanding using the rocky cliff to create a diagonal through the shot. The sky is outstanding and provides a great backdrop for the shot.

The addition of black and white to the sunset tones gives this shot 'bite'. The light is beautiful, and the profile of the outcrop with its two towers and tree is an interesting shape.
Great colours and clarity.

There are hard contrastlines around the rocks, trees and lighthouse which gives the picture a less smooth feeling that we normally might expect from a sunset, but on the composition and crop i like the image a lot. Again a picture i would not expect from that island, seems it got more hidden treasures than i thought it would be possible...very nice work.
