At the west-coast of Gozo, which is part of Malta, you find this so called "Azure Window".
Look at the tiny person standing on the rock and at the boot at the foot of the rock ..... this rock is really big !
The bow connects the rock with the land.

------------------

Not much after processing done. Only straightened, so the horizon is horizontal. ;-)
And a border + resizing for TL.

By the way: I could not take an other point of view because otherwise there would be so damn many tourists standing in my view. ;-)

Hé Joop, wat leuk, daar heb ik gelopen - fantastische omgeving. Gingen heel veel duikers het water in en wat spraken ze..nederlands! Die zitten ook overal.
Alleen hoe jij dit raam erop hebt gezet, dat kon ik toen zeker nog niet (wie weet nu wel).
Fantastisch hoe die rotsen erop staan.
H.gr en prettig weekend,
Els

Hi Joop,

Heb ik ook altijd, wil je een foto maken staan er een hoop touristen in de weg. Maar het blijft een mooie foto.
Je zou er een oude vissersboot in kunnen soepen in plaats van die rubberboot.

Groet, Matthijs

hmm... reminds me of Capri.
Nice and warm and sunny! I can tell by the bright light that it was warm and very sunny.

Nice view Joop. Maybe a bit bright, but all in all a nice shot.

Cheers,
Anneke

Lovely shot of my mother country! Very good point of view. Ed

Hola Joop,
preciosa vista,
bellos colores y pov,
detalles excelentes,
saludos

Nice details of the big rock! I like the boat in the corner even though its cut off, it gives a good perspective of the size. Nice color and good contrasts. TFS
Donna:o)


thamks for your comments on my photo" Early Sunrise (44)" :o)

Quite a view!

Yes Joop this is 'lekker'
Looks similar like another nice one of another TL member and my good friend 'Lucbus'

My only nit point is, the boat not 100% in the picture. Overall welldone.
(Frames is a personal thing)

Groet

Regards!!
M..

Hoi Joop, ben het met John eens bootje is een strafpunt, nu kreeg je er drie hier, blijven er 2 over:-) Groet
Rob

Hoi Joop,
Een pracht foto van een erg bijzonder stukje natuur. Erg indrukwekkend dat de natuur zo iets moois kan maken. Het bootje is al vermeld, dus dat hoef ik niet te herhalen. De lucht ziet er redelijk goed uit, maar had iets donkerder gemogen. Maar verder een mooie foto.
Groeten,
Niek

Gorgeous shot. I love the colour of water and the gateway of rock :) It's good to have that tiny boat in the pic like that one can compare how huge the rocks are. Very good sharpness.

Thanks for sharing,

Bhawna :)

Saludos Joop

hello
excellente vue

comme j'ai nous à Etretat
bravo

jojo

Hi there!
Thanks for your review!
I love this shot of yours. I think your POV is perfect. Nice colours and detail too. I think this looks like a National Geographic cover! Editing out the boat would have made it perfect.
Well done!

Hi Joop, A very appealing composition. The rock formation and the blue water is very good to see. Only slight quibble would be to have the back of the small boat intact, but not to woory. TFS. Murray.

Hi Joop - Great composition. I love the colors and sharpness.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hallo Joop

Ik kijk naar de foto's waar er slechts een in uw galerij.
uitstekende POV, het ziet eruit als een briefkaart.
Het is goed werk.
Ik vind dit blauw en de kliffen.
De aanwezigheid van de boot brengt dynamiek aan je foto.
Goed punt. Hoewel gefotografeerd.

Goede Zondag
Have a great sunday
