Photographer's Note

Taken at the Fortress of Isabel II, La Mola, Mahon (Mao) Harbour, Menorca.

This is part of a series of tunnels which interconnect parts of this huge fortification which was built to protect Mahon harbour, one of the deepest natural harbours in the Mediterranean and one which has, over the years, been extremely important to its occupiers who, over the centuries, have included, at various times, the British, Spanish and French.

You can read more about this fortress here. The Google map, to which I have added a link, is not very good in this particular part of Menorca.

Taken using natural light with a tripod and an 8 sec exposure in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.

This is another picture which was taken during our wonderful photographic holiday in Menorca with Philip Dunn.
