Photographer's Note

The landscape in the background is near the Azure window.Going to the bus stop I noticed this accordion player sitting in the shadow of a tree. Often accordion players are from Ukraine but probably he was Maltese. I liked this view, I hope you will like it too.

The Azure Window (Maltese: Tieqa Żerqa) is a Limestone natural arch on the Maltese island of Gozo. It is situated near Dwejra Bay on the Inland Sea. The formation, which was created after two limestone sea caves collapsed, is popular with scuba divers. The Azure Window is a popular visitor destination being close to Dwejra, a tourist village that belongs to the town of San Lawrenz. The waters around the arch are suitable for swimming, scuba diving, and boating.

In recent years, the arch has gained notoriety for the illegal cliff-diving. Many videos on YouTube feature people leaping from the middle and side of the arch.
The part of the window collapsed a few years ago, see here
