Marsaskala (M'Skala) is a sea-side village in Malta that has grown up around the small harbour at the head of Marsaskala Bay, a long narrow inlet also known as Marsaskala Creek. The bay is sheltered to the north by Ras iż-Żonqor, the south-east corner of Malta, and to the south by the headland of Ras il-Gżira.
The name comes from the words "Marsa" (meaning "Port") and "Sqalli" (meaning "Sicilian"). The village extends along both sides of the bay, and across most of Il-?amrija, a creek leading to Il-Ponta tal-Gzira.
The parish church is dedicated to Sant Anna (St. Anne).

une belle présentation de ce joli village de bord de mer. Le cadrage avec la mer au premier est très agréable et les couleurs ressortent joliment sous une douce lumière estivale.

Beautiful POV of this port. The Grand Harbor of Valletta is one of the most attractive old ports I've seen.
Nice colors, well taken.

La distance entre le quai et les immeubles au loin donne de la profondeur à l'image. Le nombre de bateaux permet de voir que cet endroit est tr`;es occupé. La qualité de la lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

It seems to be a beautiful and pleasant harbor area!
It's a very attractive picture of it, for sure!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, slim horizontal format (it deserved a larger version), chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

a wonderful panorama shot of this little harbour and its beautiful view. Lots of iconic Maltese elements here and a real idea of how space is now at a premium in little places like this.
Have a great weekend - B.

I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Nice repetition of the boats with a superb warm vs cold colour contrast between the reddish brown architecture and the blue sky and water. Tfs!
