Reaching Penyagolosa peak is easy, covering only a two hours walk to the top, from around 1200 meters to 1800 meters. At the time of the picture, meteorology was consisting on high wind and low temperatures, but above zero and with no snow present.
In the image, Puig Major can be clearly seen under some post – processing (contrast and color corrections) and also Penyal de Migdia, some 100 meters below. It is important to notice that Puig Major is Mallorca highest peak:
