Since late August, I’ve been promising to post my photographs of the closing of the Festes Sant Bartomeu. My apologies for the delay, but the photographs are finally here! I sincerely hope you enjoy them.
Just a little bit of background, the festival took place in Soller, Mallorca between August 22nd and 24th. I was told by my relatives that the festivities close every year with an enactment that somehow involves fire. I wasn’t sure what to expect, to be honest, whether it would be actual fire or fireworks. It turned out to be the latter, and it was unlike any fireworks display I’ve ever seen. I’m so glad I was able to see it. If you ever find yourself visiting Soller, Mallorca in late August, I recommend seeing the closing of this festival (make sure to pack an old pair of jeans, a long sleeved shirt and something to cover your hair, if you intend to join in the fun!).
A quick note before you dive into the gallery, please stay tuned in the following weeks for more indie reviews, writing updates, an ebook giveaway (October), and a Butterfly Crest Blog Tour (November).
