I invite you to walk around the island of Comino.
Comino, formerly called Ephestia, is a very small island of the Maltese archipelago between the islands of Malta and Gozo in the Mediterranean Sea, measuring 3.5 square kilometres in area. Named after the cumin seed that once flourished in the Maltese islands, Comino is noted for its tranquility and isolation. It has a permanent population of only four residents. One priest and one policeman commute from the nearby island of Gozo, to render their services to the local population and summertime visitors. Today, Comino is a bird sanctuary and nature reserve. Administratively, it is part of the municipality of Għajnsielem, in southeastern Gozo.

Malta is an amazing geological outcropping in the Mediterranean with so much rock and sand, but it is the variegated blues of the lagoon that becomes the focal point. I wonder if it would not be more dramatic to crop about 15% from the bottom and make it a panoramic shot. In any event, it's very dramatic.

This picture is taken near the blue lagoon. The colour of the water contrasts enormously with the dry land.
Already a while ago I've posted an almost similar picture but taken in spring. The island was still very dry then but looked a little more green.
Best regards, Paul

Bonjour, cher Christophe,
Encore une très belle vue de cette anse où viennent s'ancrer les bateaux. La mer, les montagnes, et la végétation sauvage, l'ensemble se regarde avec intérêt.

Lovely idea to take us out with this walk over Malta.
I’m curious about our next stop. This place is lovely and interesting.
Have a nice weekend.

It looks some strange for me. The southern island reminds me photos from Iceland. Here is no palms and any rich vegetation on this bay.
Anyway, good panoramic composition, perfect colors combination!

Quel bel endroit. On a l'impression de sortir du désert pour sauter sur la plage dans une très belle eau bleue scintillante. Les bateaux semblent flotter dans les airs.

Spectacular scenery, of this beautiful bay on the small island, the blue of the sea is fantastic and gives a great contrast to the reddish earth, the boats anchored I suppose of tourists, give a nice complement.
Very effective colorful, highlighting details of the image.
Very well done. I like it.
Enjoy the weekend.
My best wishes for you.

The colours are so vivid here and the warm tones of the foreground and the blue water complement each other so well. The many people enjoying the lovely day are well included too and bring the view to life.

A wonderful seascape and beautifully detail, am amazed by the colour of the sea and sky. The contrast is simple jaw dropping, Congrats.

The wideness of the area is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the boats and of the shore. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.

Good evening Krzysztof,
Wonderful blue and turquoise bay, and the red/brown rocky shores around it.
Tourists are attractiv4e to this place, just to take a stroll around there, and enjoy its natural beauty.
Fine sight well rendered photo and a nice small series.

wspaniale kolory. Ten wyjatkowy zielono niebieski kolor wody to cos z czego Comino jest najbardziej znane. Pamietam ze bedac tam mialem wybor: robic zdjecia czy tez raczej wskoczyc do tej wyjatkowej wody :)
Swietny punkt widzenia nieco z oddali. Bardzo atrakcyjny kontrast pustynnego krajobrazu i plazy pelnej turystow.

It looks like you are taking us to a popular beach, frequented by tourist boats. The water looks inviting. This is exciting!
