Welcome to my Photoblog.

A Photoblog about my island home: Malta

Malta, a thimbleful of rocky islands in the central Mediterranean, 100 kms south of Sicily, 300 kms north of Africa.

300 square kilometres in a group of seven islands three of which are inhabited.  420,000 people call this small country home.

An archipelago of honey coloured limestone rising out of the cobalt blue Mediterranean, a place boasting six millennia of unbroken human activity, a location which surprises through its Lilliputian complexity.

Join me on this trip where I shall be primarily using the medium of photography coupled with short write-ups to present different facets of Malta and its islands.  And give me your feedback if possible.

For my first photo I have chosen an aerial shot I took while on a departing flight from about 7,000 feet altitude.  The foreground shows the northern tip of mainland Malta with the islands of Comino and Cominotto in the centre and the south-easternmost tip of  the island of Gozo in the background.  This is a very undeveloped part of the archipelago and is mostly famous for its beaches and its unspoilt countryside consisting of exposed ridges and sheltered, fertile valleys.

More tomorrow!
