This frame was captured within the outer limits of the village of Mgarr.

The title to the frame is in Maltese, which translates into Farmhouse. Some tweaks & enhancements were applied in PS to add the desired mood to the scene.

Shot very late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Wish you all a happy week-end !!
