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
Here’s a snap from Thursday afternoon of one of my favourite views on the islands.
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
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
Sea, sea, sea… and more sea!
This picture is a quick snap taken this afternoon during a short walk around the island of Gozo.
Another quick snapshot from home.
Here goes another one of the crazy waves. Oh, and by the way, Happy New Year to all!
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
Here’s another photo from the same sunrise shoot. I take the opportunity to wish a Merry Christmas to all of you!
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
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
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.)
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
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.
