Middle of the World - Photos from Malta

Hi All. This thread, not in any way can compare with the Master of imagery (VF) nor the incredible beauty of Nepal. However, we share with you some of our work and life in Malta and Gozo.

We sit in the Middle of the Mediterranean Sea. After many years droning along the radials of the NS and other places I am lucky and blessed to have this little Island almost to myself.

Roger, I see pics coming now.
Quite a marina you have on the above picture, what is the water depth?
Good diving in Malta?

Not done any diving yet cos it conflicts with the day job, The bends and all that. The harbour is deep enough to take the big ocean going cruise ships. I try to get pics for you

Flying "Home" back to GOZO and a good view of Mgarr Harbour and the GOZO-MALTA Ferry service. Our crewhouse is on top of the hill to the left with a spectacular view of the Harbour.

You are posting your photos as attachments. I think VF's method is to click the "insert image" button (in the editor) and put the image directly into the post. Give 'er a try.

Is that Xewkija heliport? Good to see it getting some use - it was almost deserted when I was there 2 years ago doing some TRI training for the Malta SAR flight at LMML.

That is correct, but to do that I believe one needs to provide the direct url to the pic on a photo hosting site such as Photobucket.

DB, I think PB accounts are still available for free, so you might sign up there if you don't have another web server that might be able to host your pictures. Your pix are great but this will make the thread much more enjoyable.
