The following shots are a pot pourri of images shot during my stay on Mallorca in 1995-96, in no particular order. Mallorca is a photographer's paradise! The Mediterranean light is fantastic and the combination of flowers, clouds, cityscapes, landscapes, ocean, and villages is sublime. The weather is not always cooperative, as any photographer knows, but its interaction with the location can make for some transcendent visual experiences. I hope this sampling will convey some of that experience for you.
