Gozo Photos – it’s not all underwater!
Although the majority of my photography is taken underwater there are still many opportunities for capturing great images above ground all around the island.
Many visitors to Gozo come over on the ferry for a one day visit, and either tour the island on one of the organised coach trips or perhaps jump on one of the sightseeing buses that allow you to set your own timetable and agenda. There are always plenty of taxis to meet the ferries and the drivers will be happy to give you an all day private tour for a fixed fee.
Once you’ve visited the island for one day, you will no doubt want to come again, and a lot of repeat Gozo holiday makers follow this pattern.
A longer vacation allows more time to explore the landscape and architecture, and an increasing number of holiday makers are finding that off season trips are an ideal opportunity to get around while the temperature has not reached the summer peak. March and April are great for spring flowers, and the weather patterns are still changeable giving a greater variety to the light.
During summer the clear blue skies are loved by the sun worshippers but tend to make slightly bland landscape photographs. In springtime and autumn we see a few more clouds in the sky and broken patterns of light on the sea. A coastal Gozo photography walk around an area like San Blas Bay North of Nadur will bring its rewards.
Another very popular spot to visit is at Dwejra where you can see Fungus Rock, Crocodile Rock, Blue Hole and Azure Window, and the Inland Sea. The video below gives a wee bit of flavour of the images you can capture at Dwejra both above and below the waves.
The Gozo Tourist Authority provide great information to help you decide where to go for the best Gozo Photography opportunities.
