[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is what people in malta call The Azure Window (Maltese: Tieqa Żerqa) is a natural arch in the Maltese island of Gozo featuring a table-like rock over the sea. The Inland Sea, Gozo, and Dwejra Bay, were created millions of years ago when two limestone caves collapsed. This and the near by Blue Hole and Inland sea are popular scuba diving sites.

Dwejra is a tourist village that belongs to the town of St. Lawrence, Gozo, Malta.

There are so many shots of this its hard to be original but i went for black and white to give the photo a bit of an old feel to it !

hope you like it !

welcome to TL
Great shot, This is a picturesque and very impressive shot, composition is perfect, like a postcard. Beautiful work, Congratulations. Have a nice day.

Hello Mark
Brave choice of B&W here, but it works quite well, the view through the arch is spot on. The fg is over exposed, probably due to the harsh light. Earlier or later in the day might be better - and if you can, wait for a day with some clouds!
Regards, Leslie

Hi Mark
Lovely shot of a fantastic place, nice one

Hi Wats,

Welcome on TL

It is true that the Azure Window is very much an attraction and its photographed from all sides...but you managed to give it quite a different feel in B&W.

I like your pov...since the photo its taken from the side rather then fully facing it gives it depth.



Hi Mark,

Welcome on treklens.
Hope you ll enjoy yourself here.
Regarding the picture, tha Azure window is always shot in colour, but here you did a very good b&w choice.
Very good start in the adventerous world of photography.

Keep them coming Wats!!
