The Azure Window. Nikon D3100. DSC_0217.

By rpba18205
The Azure Window. Malta
Panorama. Constructed from 6 vertical images, stitched in Microsoft ICE.
Taken on the28/12/2011 at 16:18:54Hrs GMT using a Nikon D3100 camera with an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR+ a 52mm UV Filter.
On the island of Gozo in Malta, The Azure Window is a natural arch located near the village of Dwejra. This landmark was created thousands of years ago when two limestone caves collapsed. This photograph was taken in Dec 2011 & apparently in April 2012 there was a further collapse, which has significantly, changed the view.

Your panos are always skillfully done as is clear from these images.

Both are well constructed. I like the comp of v2 better, however.
Very nice work.

Great shot, lovely warm light - next time I go to Malta I must make an effort to go to Gozo and the azure window.

Lovely light on the rocks and also a little view of the rocks through the "window". I thought V1 was great, then saw V2, which I have to admit to liking a little better, probably for the foreground interest and reflections.

the reflections in v2 make it stand out that little bit more, lovely pano shots.

A quite superb panorama at V 1, Rob: the detail is immaculate and the presence of figures allows scale to be appreciated. And so interesting too from the geological viewpoint with all those stratified layers so clearly defined.
