Beautiful evening light falling on the cliffs near Cap de Formentor in Northern Mallorca.
Our second day in Mallorca was initially not looking that great - as we arrived at the northern town of Port de Pollença, the sky was covered in grey cloud and it kept raining almost constantly. After a few hours in town we were considering just heading back to the hotel in Palma, but we decided to visit the Northern peninsula of Cap de Formentor before heading South.
The sky started clearing up and it suddenly became obvious that there was good potential for a beautiful sunset, and the sky certainly didn’t disappoint eventually!
This is a long exposure taken using the B+W 3.0 10 stop ND filter, Lee ND grad was used to balance the exposure between the cliffs and the sky.

Yesterday I went for a drive up to Conrhenny in an attempt to clear my godawful headache with some fresh air (to no avail). Although, it was nice to venture to one of my favourite places on the island before returning to Lancaster in a matter of days.

Small, boxy, Victorian-style houses are iconic of downtown St. John’s Newfoundland. They get their name from the fact that they are multicolored like a bag of jellybeans.
My distinct lack of activity on this blog can only be attributed to the fact that I’ve spent the several recent weeks revising for examinations at the end of my second year of university. A brief post-exam visit head in combination with the stunning Manx countryside and summer sunshine provided me with the opportunity to clear my head following the intense exam season, refreshed and ready to continue with my coursework for third year.
Yesterday, after my recent disappointment regarding my lack of photography, I decided it’d be a good idea to grab my camera and my bike and go for some air following a long day at work. I’m ever so glad I went, as I was treated to the most spectacular views across the fields towards the sunset.
