Photographer's Note

Another picture taken at the Fortress of Isabel II, La Mola, Mahon (Mao) Harbour, Menorca. Again, 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 a lot more about this place here.

Whereas this picture was taken in a darker part of the tunnel system, this area was in brighter light and was taken hand-held. Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.
