View from a Mallorcan Monastery

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Paula Mintek

I took this shot on a warm September day in the historic village of Valdemossa, high up on the island of Mallorca. In a small garden area off of one of the monastery's cells, I tried to capture the warmth emanating from the old stone walls, the intense red accents of the geraniums, and the view toward the Tramuntana mountains.

Location: Carthusian Monastery, Valdemossa, Mallorca, Spain
