Many moons ago I walked the length of Sunset Boulevard, from downtown L. A. through Hollywood to Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades. Nothing quite equals the magnificent beauty of the Pacific Ocean or the sheer luminosity of the Californian light.
When it comes to sunsets, though, nothing can compare with the impressive splendour of the Mallorcan sundown. We have had some stunning sun-setting performances over the last five days. Okay, I have to admit that seeing the beauty of the sun disappearing beyond the horizon and actually capturing the dramatic view on camera is not at all the same. What I saw yesterday on the beach of s’Arenal, near Palma, was eons better than what I can demonstrate in the resulting photo. I offer my apologies.
The photo was taken in Platja de Palma, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: February 16th, 2012. The time was 18:20:28.
