Sunset from Cafe Del Mar – (Ref: pfm130166)

A lovely panoramic view of the sun setting over St.Paul’s Islands as seen from Café del Mar, forming part of the Malta National Aquarium complex. An extract from the Café’s online page says “Designed by one of Malta’s foremost designers, Mark Pace, Café del Mar sits magnificently at the water’s edge. The design is all about the sea and Mediterranean sunsets. The infinity pool reaches out into the clear blue waters. The seating area and pool deck have unobstructed panoramic views of the sea. The design is simple, predominantly white to fully compliment the natural...

Mosta – Festa Santa Maria – (Ref: pfm130165)

This time of year it is only appropriate to post a panoramic image celebrating the feast of St.Mary. A number of towns in Malta and Gozo celebrate this feast (7 I believe) but this photo hails from the town of Mosta.   The parish church of Mosta (known as the Rotunda of St Marija Assunta) can be seen in the foreground centre and is the third largest unsupported dome in the World. The Rotunda, designed by George Grognet de Vasse, a French citizen resident in Mosta, took 27 years to complete.   On April 9, 1942, during an afternoon air-raid, a 200 kg Luftwaffe bomb pierced the dome...

Sliema Promenade – Ghar Id-Dud – (Ref: pfm130164)

The early sun rising over the colourful Sliema Promenade hosting the ‘Sliema Street Arts Festival 2013’, the same location which in the past years welcomed merry makers into the popular ‘Chalet’ between 1926 and 1959. Coloured Festivals in collaboration with Add More Colors and the Sliema Local Council this year transformed the 3km Sliema Promenade into a melting pot of art, dance and music with artists, locals and visitors enjoying the weekend side by side.     Attracting a wide range of local & international artists, artworks will included traditional...

Ghajn Tuffieha Bay (Tat-Tarag) – (Ref: pfm130163)

This panoramic shot of Ghajn Tuffieha Bay and the derelict Riviera Martinique Hotel during a wintry afternoon gives a very different perspective of the beautiful golden and sandy bay which we enjoy during Summer time. Ghajn Tuffieha is generally translated to “The Apple’s Eye“, however (and I stand to go against general perception here) as a small kid I remember getting my hands on a very old book of fables which contained a short story of fairies living on the small island of Malta in a place where a magical apple tree grew right in the middle of a spring of water. In...
