The Wonders of Mallorca: Port de Sóller – Misty Morning.

2014: A brief one week visit to Port de Sóller on the Baleriac Island of Mallorca (Marjorca) brings back happy memories. I took many photos as usual and I present to you now some of those.

This first one was taken from our hotel front after a night of heavy rain with thunder and lightning. Behind the port promenade frontage is a natural wilderness and steep mountain foothills. The lighting effect here is caused by thick ground mist in the fields rising to obscure the hillside trees which can just be made out.

Enjoy full size.

What a lovely effect this shot has Herb. I have many happy memories from this very place. I remember the train ride very well. It was quite a time ago and I wish I had taken more photos. The last time I went to Mallorca was in 2009 and my compact camera packed up! I had to buy a couple of disposable cameras :( Cheers, Rosa.

Herb Riddle replied to Rosalyn Hilborne:

Glad you liked this scene Rosa, It is always my pleasure to re-awaken memories from my viewers experiences. Like my Tuscany series, I have quite a few to post and at least one of the train too. Nothing worse than a camera pack-up on holiday. Happened to me too once or twice.
