The Mediterranean Sea at Calpe, Spain

Calpe is a small town on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, in the Alicante province near Valencia.  It’s most remembered for the Penyal d’Ifach, the northern counterpart to the south’s rock of Gibraltar.

This photo was taken as I ascended the Penyal d’Ifach, looking down at the resort and ocean below.  The rock is also a protected bird sanctuary, and so the prevalence of birds in nesting season made it impossible to get a picture without a bird in the shot (or, alternatively, dive-bombing me and my tripod).

Of course, I was too much of a scaredy-cat to ascend the entire rock, but I was quite content with this view of clear blue skies and even bluer waters.
