A post back from home

Joseph/ August 11, 2014/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

So dear blog followers, it’s been no less than three whole months since my last update here – and admittedly,  I do feel quite bad about this.  It was a period packed with activity, from shooting weddings to hiking in the Alps and seeing my work published in National Geographic.  Also, MUSE (which is this really cool camera/spectrograph I’m working on at

Currently back home in Gozo for a break – I realize now how much I had missed the sun and the sea!

A visit home would not be complete if I didn’t stop by my favourite site on the planet: The Azure Window of Dwejra in Gozo. To me, this place is as close to magical as anything can get. Now, I am sure that many who look at this image will find it nearly too surreal to believe. There is warm

My favourite place in the World

Joseph/ October 14, 2012/ Uncategorized/ 1 comments

Here goes a picture which shows the location from where I took my previous picture of the Milky Way. This is, quite possibly, my favourite site in the world. For as long as I’m alive I will keep returning to photograph this magical place. (Click here for more pictures I’ve taken at this place in the past.) Make sure you

Rough Sea

It’s hard to imagine a seascape so different from that depicted in yesterday’s photo. In a matter of a few hours, the sea went from being a serene, peaceful sight to absolutely terrifying. It so happened to be perfectly timed from my perspective, since today marked the annual, traditional (by now almost religious) gathering of fellow photo-junkies. We ended this

When the world is still asleep

Early this morning I headed out to the sea again, this time with my good friend and fellow photographer Armand Sciberras, who dropped me a message late last night to ask if I was up for a sunrise shoot. And shoot we did. Early mornings are truly beautiful. There is something incredibly peaceful about them; you look around and there

Crashing waves

Joseph/ December 22, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Yesterday we had a strong gale-force wind (force 9 at one point) which led to some really big waves. Of course I couldn’t let such a fantastic photographic opportunity go by, so I headed out to snap a few pictures of the crashing waves. Little did I know I would unsuspectingly end up being dragged into the sea by a

Sunset Wish

This is precisely what I need right now. But since I’m tied to my desk, I’ll have to do with a picture. (This was taken a while back in Noordwijk in the Netherlands.)

Riding at Sunset

Joseph/ June 15, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 1 comments

Today’s picture takes us back to Noordwijk in the Netherlands. After a day-long meeting at the European Space Agency we headed out for dinner at a lovely restaurant overlooking the beach. I confess I was considerably distracted from my food all the time, as I watched the sun slowly setting beyond the horizon. Then, when least expected, three horses came

Eternal peace.

Joseph/ April 20, 2011/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

This place keeps drawing me to it. It is a site which I’ve photographed countless times before, yet every time feels like my first time. It possesses a beauty and timelessness which conveys to me a sense of peace like no other place. So yesterday I went along with all the kit hoping to get a new angle on it.
