EVERY so often when the skies are clear, Mallorca can be seen from the Catalan capital of Barcelona.
Between the storms and clouds that have graced the island, Alfons Puertas grabbed a gorgeous shot of Mallorca glowing in the sunset.
The photo is taken 206 kilometres away, and Alfons explains that the shot can only be caught on a clear day, with no clouds and dim early-morning lighting in Barcelona. The photography fan has managed to capture the island from the mainland on a few occasions over the years, and says it is only possible to see between 12 and 15 times a year.
