Valletta Harbour by night.......



These shots were taken yesterday evening from the Upper Barrakka Gardens (Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq) in Valletta. It offers a panoramic view of the Grand Harbour. The origins of the Upper Barrakka Gardens go back to 1661, when in effect it was a ‘private' garden belonging to the Italian knights.

Carin, thanks for the award , will blog about this on tomorrow's post.

Luke, today around the maltese islands a good number of towns and villages are celebrating the feast of the Assumption of St.Mary

Hilda, it is a nice view. I think the lights make it look kind of magical.
