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.
