Mġarr is town and harbor at the east end of Gozo, Malta.
Mġarr grew up around the shallow harbor which shares its name. Ferry services to Malta were in operation by 1241, and fishing was already established. While the area around the harbor was developed over the following centuries, there was little development of the harbor itself until 1841, when a breakwater was constructed to provide more shelter to the port. This breakwater was strengthened and extended several times up to 1906. A larger breakwater was constructed between 1929 and 1935, and two more in 1969; on the completion of the latter, the area of the port was expanded to 121,400 square meters.
The ferry terminal was rebuilt at a cost of €9.3 million in the early 21st century. Work began in 2001 and took seven years, with the terminal opening in February 2008. The harbor now has facilities for around 600 passengers and 200 cars. The design of the new harbor was changed during the construction process to reduce its visual impact on the surrounding landscape

Very impressive work, no doubt th original shows up so much more detail when zooming in to so uch on show.
I do like the warm illuminations to the rear, covering the far buildings.

Hi Francis
Many interesting elements are shown on this well lit panorama. The sharpness is good and the grey sky is a good complement.


Hi Francis,I like the light across the buildings on the right and the church standing up there at attention. They sure love their blue dont they. Fiona
