Apart

A night to remember in Mallorca, Spain. I was driving around the beautiful mountain roads Mallorca has to offer. It was a rainy evening, but I decided to go out anyway. As the clouds started to disappear behind the mountains I stopped the car and wanted to capture this view of road reflections of the water and Milky Way barely visible in behind the mountains in the horizon. This photograph was captured somewhere between Andratx and Lluc. I also included a before photo for you to view.
