The Blue Grotto, Malta

Very pleasing to have a sale of this picture reported yesterday because it is such a popular subject. It is a major tourist attraction and I was quite fortunate in finding just one boat and to be able wait until it swept around forming a pleasing arc to improve the composition. Many of the other images available either did not have a boat, or had too many boats, or simply a less pleasing – and simple- composition. The boat gives scale to emphasise the real size of the natural arch and limestone cliffs.
