Traditional Maltese fishing boats moored in the harbour at Marsaxlokk.
Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village much frequented by tourists located in the south-eastern part of Malta, with a population of 3,499 people (March 2013). The village’s name comes from marsa, which means "port" and xlokk, which is the local name for south east. The word is related to the name for the dry sirocco wind that blows from the Sahara, comparable to the equivalent Catalan word, "xaloc". The village is known for the Marsaxlokk Market, a large market which takes place around the whole village on Sundays and tourist market all days during the week. The inhabitants of the village are called the Xlukkajri and are historically fishermen though a large proportion are now involved in tourism

i luzzu sono molto belle grazie ai colori vivaci che si raddoppiano grazie ai riflessi, questa caratteristica ne fa una forte attrattiva fotografica, proprio come ci mostri tu.

Another excellent photograph from the island. The framing is spot on with excellent colours and pin sharp details. I loved the crystal clear water with the reflections. Thanks for sharing these lovely pictures. Surely must be a beautiful place to visit.
Have a nice evening.

one thing that sticks in the memory when in Malta is the colourful and beautiful little fishing boats. They are all so distinctive in shape and this shot captures their iconic character perfectly.
Enjoy your weekend - B.

An excellent image of these colourful, traditional fishing boats. They are nicely placed in the composition to present to us their detail but also to enhance the depth and perspective of the image.

Marvelous colors mingle in great harmony and vividness.
Same-style fishing boats and other vessels afloat on the calm amooth water, generated a fantastic mirror effect.
The hills beyond gave "frame' to the harbour scenery.
Well applied photojob, bravo.

Quelle belle photo. Il faut dire que ces barques sont vraiment photogéniques et portent fièrement les couleurs de la ville. La couleur de l'eau est sublime.

This is vivid and beautifully colorful, the yellow, green and blues stand out so well. The sea seems to an almost viscous feel to it, looks as much semi solid as it does liquid! Cool effect. I like the positioning of the coast too, making the upper third a nice earthy contrast to the foreground sea. Nice one!

You shows again a very nice and quiet picture of the port from Marsaxlokk.
The fisher boats lie to wait for depart, but wait on their owner.
Nice perspective and depth picture.
Sharpness and clarity are very well.
Excellent composition, nice presentation, nice photo work.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

the luminosity of the water and the vessels is amazing, you captured lovely reflections too. I like the large space you gave to the sea and how the vessels lie on it in different angles. This type of boat immediately reveals where the harbour is, the light, the details and the colours of the landscape are clearly Mediterranean. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

it`s nice to be able to see each of the colourful boats nicely composed in it`s own space instead of just on big jumble,they stand out very nicely against the barren BG.

Very beautiful picture, with special regards to the lovely saturated colors, chosen pov and composition!

Salut Steph,une composition tres tres riche,tu as pousee' bien les couleurs pour avoir le meilleur effect depuis les barques et l'eau,excellent details aussi! Bon Dimanche et merci,Luciano

Les reflets sur l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des bateaux. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

The colourful boats and their reflections are the eye-catching element in this shot Stephen and I love their contrast with the duller natural colours of the land; an interesting juxtaposition of wet and dry. The luminosity of the water makes me think of quick-silver. Beautiful!

nice series from Malta. I like the colorful boats here. Good shot from fine POV. View and photo I like.
Have a nice day.

these i think are my favorite shots from Malta...the colorful small boats.
so glad you posted this one.
the larger white boat in the bg seems so out of place :)
the height of the small boats in the bow is very attractive, such a steep angle.
love this one

Très joli ce petit port avec les luzzu colorés en premier plan, les reflets sont superbes!
