Hands down….Malta is one of the most beautiful places on the planet! I know it probably sounds a little extreme but boy oh boy, I was absolutely smitten with the place even as we were lining up the runway in the aircraft as we were approaching to land.
Before I delve right into sharing Malta’s gorgeous images with you, I just wanted to say how good it feels to be back writing and sharing my photography as I know its been a while since I last posted anything. I needed to take some time away as so many things have happened since I was last here (some of them life changing 😁). It’s really good to be back and I’m looking forward to catching up with you too. 😉
On to the story….I was a little shocked mind you at the colour of the island. Everything seemed to take on a beige or cream hue in colour….that sort of dryish parched look (like it hadn’t rained in a very long time), and indeed it hadn’t according to the taxi driver that gave us a brief history lesson as she took us to our hotel open arrival. I had the windows down and took in the thick hot breeze as we meandered our way through the cute and narrow streets.
Malta is seriously hot this time of year and my husband and I were looking forward to it days leading up to our travel. We celebrated our first year wedding anniversary in fine Maltese style.
Malta is beautiful, it’s vibrant, and such an amazing little island full of happy people basking in the sweltering heat. I guess it’s kinda easy to have a constant smile on your face when the weather is literally always fabulous.
So if you love architecture (as I do) this place will make you lose your mind. Parts of Malta are crumbling and parts of it have been restored – and you know what? Thats what makes this little island so special. You’ll be in for such a special treat with the building styles and unique structures.
We took a bus drive to the island’s oldest city, Mdina, to see its charm and beauty. Just as expected, it was simply divine. It was ever so quiet….sort of unspoilt and untouched….a true photographers paradise.
Comino, is more famously known for its turquoise water and spectacular scenery. Its blue lagoon is a summer hit for day trippers and it also includes a couple of beaches too.
Malta is inundated with incredible views that will leave you wanting more and more.
By far this was an unbelievably beautiful trip and I truly got to live the Maltese experience. As you can imagine I took hundreds and hundreds of photographs so there will definitely be a part two to this post that will focus on street photography.
I used my EOS Canon 1200D with a 24-70mm lens and my iPhone 6s+. Slight post processing was done using photoshop.
Peace and love guys,
