Suprising view of the highest peaks in the western sector of the Serra de Tramuntana de Mallorca (Puig de Galatzó and Mola de s’Esclop) framed by the solar disk, photographed from the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, crossing the Mediterranean Sea for about 258 km.

The Puig Campana (1408 meters) is the second highest mountain in the province of Alicante. It is an emblematic peak, given its morphology and imposing appearance.

The climb to its summit (which was done at night to take this picture) is always challenging. The walk to the top overcomes a positive slope that ranges between 800 and 1000 meters.

To take the picture, the day when the sunrise was aligned with the Puig de Galatzó (1024 meters) and the Mola de s’Esclop (927 meters) was chosen. The calculation was made with the help of Majorcan photographer Marcos Molina.

In the photograph you can see the two Mallorcan peaks framed above the solar disk, protruding above the impressive silhouette of the Serra de Bèrnia, an elongated crest that reaches 1126 meters high at its summit.
