Photographer's Note

Set in the middle of the Serra de Tramuntana Mountain range, in the west of Mallorca, is the imposing Puig de Galatzó. Standing at 1,027m high, the puig can be seen from much of Mallorca. Easily noted by a lip on the peak - like a smaller hump - this is one of Mallorca's geological emblems.

In winter, the long rays of the sun shine on the peak shortly after first light. I had wanted a solo shot of the peak, and this morning I was greeted by the slowly evaporating remnants of a cloud that had sat over night in the valleys of the mountain range. As the sun climbed, it hit the peak, sparkling golden rays on the highest range as if a candle had just been lit.

Buen fin de semana, as they say!
