Sunset over St. Paul's Bay

By dougv  
A while since I uploaded anything.

As I have just returned for Holiday in Malta, I thought I would upload a Sunset shot that I took from the balcony of our apartment.

As you can see it overlooks St. Paul's Bay looking towards Gozo, and every evening there is a beautiful sunset to behold.

We had some wonderful weather with temeratures in the high 30's.

Hope you like this shot as it was taken with a fairly basic camera.

Comments welcome.

Love it. I keep hoping that one day I'll see a sunset with this sort of colour and then maybe be able to do it justice with the camera. One day......

Thanks Mary, thanks Neil.

Yes, we had a great time.
I cheated a little bit by using the "Best Shot" setting which boosts the reds a little, but looking at a shot taken without it there isn't that much difference.

I cropped out the buildings in the foreground so that it wouldn't look so cluttered.

I bought the Exilim just to take on holiday as it is small and light, and the video clips are really good quality too.
Not suprised realy as it is a 7.2 Mp CCD with MPG4 video.

Thanks Jon.
Its not the best image in the world, but I think the little Casio does quite a good job for a shirt pocket camera.

Great colours Doug, like the pattern of the boats in the bay, someone once told me that with sunsets we need a strong silohette protuding from the land into the sky and I think this would have helped this shot and improved a beautiful sunset.Went to Malta a couple of years ago it's a wonderful island, we stayed at St Julians,weather and food brilliant and people English speaking, honest and so friendly. Well done with this shot.

Hi Doug,

In fact, it's pretty close to where I live ... nice shot too.
