Wild Flowers of Mallorca.

I have been reviewing some of my images taken in Mallorca and I have put together an album containing some of the images of wild flowers.

06. Cyclamen balearicum

Cyclamen balearicum

I generally visit the island in the spring when the flowers are at their best. The Balearic Cyclamen was found in a rock crevice close to the summit of sa Galera at almost 900 m.

For the technically minded I use an old Canon 400D with the standard 18 – 55mm lens. Setting a wide aperture lets me throw the background out of focus. However this is quite a heavy camera to take on a long walk especially if there is a lot of climbing. In these cases I use my trusty Sony compact. I have not got as much control over the image but I always have the camera with me.

Here are some of my images.

I understand that the images in the album are no longer available on SkyDrive. I have therefore updated this article and added some new images.

About crosbyman66

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
