Photographer's Note

Hi there,

Once again a step back to my Malta experience. I have uploaded a picture of the Grand Harbour in Valletta. What you can also see there are the 2 lighthouses: St. Elmo and Ricasoli.

The Grand Harbour (il-Port il-Kbir) in Malta is a natural harbour which is probably the island's greatest geographic asset, and a cardinal determinant of Malta's history. This is reflected in its commercial activity and its military architecture.
The Grand Harbour is sometimes referred to as Valletta Harbour but this is arguably incorrect. Valletta is built on a promontory between two harbours: the Grand Harbour and Marsamxett (Marsamscetto) harbour with roughly equal coastlines on either, although more of its commercial activity is on the Grand Harbour side where the 'Customs House' is located. Moreover the Grand Harbour was Birgu's harbour before Valletta was built, and Birgu (Vittoriosa) and Senglea are more completely ensconced in this one harbour than Valletta is.

On this shot I decided to use the ND400 Filter to increase the exposure time. I wish I had more clouds on the sky that day, but this is one thing which you can't book, when you're booking your holidays, rite?

Have a nice evening Folks,
