THE ‘MECCA’ OF LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY
“S’Ullal de na Coloms”, better known as the cave of light, is one of the most beautiful corners of the island. It is an opening in the cliff that reaches sea level and continues into the depths of the Mediterranean Sea. The landscape that surrounds it, together with its natural beauty, make this enclave perfect for landscape photography.
It is a hike that can be enjoyed both in the morning and in the afternoon, but it is recommended to go at sunset, when the sunlight caresses the cliffs that surround the cave. Away from urban centers, this location is also key for night photography, since we can enjoy starry skies free of light pollution.
Also, if you are a lover of underwater photography, this location is even better. During the summer months, sunlight enters the cave, creating a beam of light that reaches the bottom of the sea. This makes the cave a real dream for all lovers of the deep.
What are you going to learn?
Expose under difficult lighting conditions.
Improve the composition of your photographs, understanding why the rules.
Perform landscape photography in complicated environments.
Make the most of your camera, no matter what it is.
This route is one of the most complicated at a photographic level, due to the fact of having to carry the equipment. It is relatively long and has a large slope, so it is not a route for everyone.
We recommend bringing the minimum equipment, which as a general rule will be your camera, a wide angle lens and a tripod. The latter should be hanging from your backpack at all times.
If you want to take underwater photography, you must have some experience in the sport of freediving. It is a place that can become dangerous for people who are not used to holding their breath and swimming in the depths.
