2017-07-27  SUNSET AT BAIA BEACH MALTA

By | 2017-07-26T19:29:32+00:00 July 27th, 2017|Malta|

The northern part of Malta has those classical sandy beaches with blue sea and sunshades. The sinking sun adds to that beach stereotype, then the warm breeze of air and the smell of salty sea water. Outside on the terrace of Baia Beach Club, you have the great view of the lagoon, this combined with a Frangelico on the rocks, and you have a lovely evening. The Frangelico is an Italian liqueur made from hazelnuts and tastes like a liquid Nutella. 🙂

2017-04-26  GREEN GRASS IN GOZO

By | 2017-04-25T18:55:18+00:00 April 26th, 2017|Malta|

The weather is a bit different in Gozo and Malta in the winter months; you can see green, lush grass, blooming flowers and bushes, warm weather, not too cold, pleasant. 🙂 Then if you can find such a lovely valley as here on the photo, you have good preconditions for landscape shots. Then if the friendly bus driver brings you to the next sight, you have a perfect day. 🙂

2017-03-08 AZURE WINDOW IN MALTA

By | 2017-03-08T13:24:42+00:00 March 8th, 2017|Malta|

I have taken this shot at the northernmost part of Gozo, which is one of the Maltese islands. It is always interesting to think about how nature has built that hole in the rocks. Maybe it lasted millions of years. Especially it was a great location for a photographer, for sure.  😥  Today the Azure Window collapsed due to heavy storm, it’s completely gone and lost forever. http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20170308/local/the-azure-window-lost-and-gone-forever.641810

2017-02-14 LUCKY TECHNICIANS

By | 2017-02-14T22:16:42+00:00 February 14th, 2017|Malta|

Not many technicians can share such a great view from their workplace like here in the Smart City in Malta. The blue sea, mostly sunny weather, a lounge near the water pool, a nice environment to relax during the lunch break or go for an after work drink.  🙂

2017-01-17 SHIP AT THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA

By | 2017-01-18T20:05:49+00:00 January 17th, 2017|Malta|

I was standing on the deck of a ferry from Malta to Gozo. It was very windy and most of the guests were inside so I used the free space to walk around to take photos of the mediterranean sea  🙂

2017-01-05 TYPICAL MALTESE STONY WALLS

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:18+00:00 January 5th, 2017|Malta|

Those stony walls are typical for Malta and Gozo, you can see them all over the country, often arranged to terraces and bordered as fields for agriculture.

2016-12-23 MALTA WITH GREEN GRASS IN THE WINTER

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:18+00:00 December 23rd, 2016|Malta|

During the winter months you can see green grass and blooming flowers in Gozo, the sister island of Malta. Compared to Middle/Northern Europe you think you are in the spring with the nice temperature of about 16 degrees Celsius. 🙂

2016-12-13 WARM NIGHTS IN MALTA

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:20+00:00 December 13th, 2016|Malta|

Since Malta lies in the same latitude as Northern Africa you can expect warmer nights during the autumn and winter months. These photos have been shot end of October where you could walk around with a T-shirt during evening and night, a big difference to central Europe where you need a winter jacket during these seasons. The first photo shows the Portomaso tower on the left, which is Malta’s highest building.

2016-12-06 SMART CITY

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00 December 6th, 2016|Malta|

If I’m abroad and there is a possibility, I want to see tech cities like here in Malta. This one is called Smart City and is the home of Maltese Internet providers, data centers and high tech companies. I could get a visit at the BMIT data centre, this was absolutely cool, because it has been built with the support of Amazon.

2016-11-04 ST. JULIANS, MALTA IN THE NIGHT

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:22+00:00 November 4th, 2016|Malta|

At the boardwalk in St. Julians there are concrete sockets where you can place your camera and do long-term exposures in the night, if you don’t have a tripod with you. This was the case with me, because shortly before I had dinner and then I decided to take a walk at this nice promenade. The mirrored light in the sea and the light stars were fascinating.
