Bahrija splendour

By KingArthur
Shot taken pre-Covid on the 10th February 2020, a public holiday locally celebrating the shipwreck of St. Paul. I was lucky to spend the day touring, enjoying photography with my brother Edwin - unfortunately, our younger brother Herbert couldn't join us for the day.

On the day I was happily trying out my then newly acquired full frame Nikon D610 fitted with a very good Nikkor 28-85mm zoom lens. One of our morning drives took us to the enchanting village of Bahrija located on the western coast of the Island. Descending past it in the deep valley below, we simply had to pull up to savour this breath taking view ..... very soon Edwin and myself had our shutters whirring .....

Exactly opposite you will notice Fomm ir-Rih ridge, renowned for the fierce blustery North-Westerly winds commonly prevailing in this region, while on the horizon lies the sister Island Gozo with Ta' Cenc chalky cliffs seen top extreme left of the shot. Admittedly, we had beautiful weather on the day with sporadic cloud cover offering constant light changing conditions - a real bonus for landscape photography

Quite honestly I was quite impressed with the performance of the full frame D610, as well as the crispness of the Nikkor zoom lens, quite a good combo I have to say. Viewing large is recommended to savour ampler detail.

Enjoy your weekend,
Joe Smile
