2019-09-03 SUNRISE IN MALTA

By |2019-09-03T04:57:33+01:00September 3rd, 2019|Malta|

I thought about why the sunrise is so intense in Malta, maybe because there are no mountains which interrupt, only the endless flat sea, where the sun can show its power at the fullest when going up. I got up early to go to the gym in the morning. But before, I went on the pool deck and shot some sunrise photos from the “The Palace” hotel in Sliema.

2019-08-31 LIGHTHOUSE IN MALTA

By |2019-08-28T20:19:16+01:00August 31st, 2019|Malta|

I was on a boat, and I had my Fuji X-T1 with me. It is waterproof and dust resistant, the right tool for an adventurous boat-trip. On the way around the coast of Malta, I saw that lighthouse. The photo came out precisely as I had it in my mind, the blue sea on the bottom with the blue sky on the upper half.

2019-06-26 THE REFRESHING SEA OF MALTA

By |2019-06-25T21:26:37+01:00June 26th, 2019|Malta|

Crystal clear water, where you can see the rocks and water plants on the ground. The best way to cool off on a hot day. The island of Malta is centrally located in the Mediterranean, surrounded by blue sea as far as the eye can see.

2019-06-19 THE OLD DODGE BUS IN MALTA

By |2019-06-18T19:13:23+01:00June 19th, 2019|Malta|

Unfortunately, public buses in Malta have been replaced by new ones. The old orange design was iconic and unique in traffic. But you can still see tourist buses that reflect the design of the 50s. Like this bus in the photo, with which we drove to a northern beach.

2019-06-04 THE SUNLIGHT IN MY HOTEL ROOM

By |2019-05-26T15:17:39+01:00June 3rd, 2019|Malta|

Two days in Malta, the Palace Hotel with the balcony and the warm sunlight filling the room. Malta lies south of Sicily; you can expect warm to mild weather the whole year.

2019-01-03   HOUSE IN MALTA

The photo shows the view from my balcony of the Victoria Hotel in Malta. My time was short, due to a Christmas party, but my Google Pixel 2 did a great job with the night-sight feature.

2018-10-05   MALTA FROM MY HOTEL ROOM

By |2018-10-04T19:24:01+01:00October 4th, 2018|Malta|

From time to time I get a hotel room with a beautiful view of the city Sliema in Malta, which is worth taking a photo. In this case, I stayed in the “The Palace” hotel. With a room on the 6th floor and the right direction I took my camera out and did some shots of the buildings in the dusk.

2018-08-30   BEACH BAR IN MALTA

By |2018-08-28T19:29:18+01:00August 29th, 2018|Malta|

Most of the Maltese beaches, you’ll find on the Northern side. I can’t remember the name, but that bar was typical, Aperol-Sprizz, Hugo, and Campari with ice. Lounge chairs outside, walls covered with reeds and white sun umbrellas for the heat. The mediterranean sea is very clear; you can see the water plants, fish, and starfish with the naked eye. A friend of mine told me, last time he even saw a ray near the beach.

2018-03-19   TERRACES NEAR MDINA

By |2018-03-18T11:23:21+01:00March 19th, 2018|Malta|

On the walkway up to Mdina I did that shot of the terraces with that little city on top. Because of the heavy clouds I thought it would be raining soon, but the sun kept shining and we had a nice later afternoon in Mdina. Since I was at a work outing, we had as a program to attend at a paperchase. Getting a list of instructions to fulfill was a good opportunity to explore Mdina and its surroundings.

2018-03-02   MDINA GATE MALTA

By |2018-02-25T18:10:08+01:00March 2nd, 2018|Malta|

The city Mdina is enclosed by a city wall, the photo shows the Mdina Gate as the only entry into the city. The area is very popular with film crews, parts of the movie Gladiator and episodes of Game of Thrones have been filmed there. A touristy “Games of Thrones”-tour shows you the filming-locations. Inside the city are narrow streets and high buildings, dating back to the 14th century. Currently it has a population of 236.  🙂
