‘il-Blata tal-Melħ’, Baħrija, Malta

Centuries old, these weathered, stone-dug stairs might have been used to easily access the sea below. This flat stretch of coastline is full of salt pans, most probably serving communities
who used to live here since the Bronze Age.

Their clean, symmetric alignment with the cliff-edge and horizon always fascinated me.
A perfect combination with the Milky Way straight-up in the Summer sky.
