Goodbye, Azure Window

posted on 9th of march, 2017

One of Malta's most famous landmarks, the Azure Window, is no more :O

It collapsed yesterday into the sea after heavy storms hit. How sad is that? & it was on my list of places to visit...

Here are my favorite photos on DT of the Gozo Island arch:

Lovely selection of photos. Such a shame it's gone. It certainly highlights the importance of photographs to document these natural wonders!

Very nice collection, love all of them! -- and even though it is a sad story that there is no Azure Window anymore, isn't it also great to realize how important it is to take photos of famous places?
