The Milky Way over Dwejra Bay, Gozo


  • 'Special Mention' in the 2015 TWAN International Earth & Sky Photo Contest.

    The Milky Way over 'il-Ġebla tal-Ġeneral' (Fungus Rock) and Dwejra Bay, Gozo

    So much energy on such a calm night. Dwejra Bay and the Fungus Rock with an eruption of stars, nebulae and gas clouds which make up our Galaxy the Milky Way. The long exposure transforms the small light on the yacht's mast into a beacon, which balances the image with its bright, elongated reflection on the water surface. It also lights up the Fungus Rock, helping it stand out more in the scene. What a better place to spend sometime at sea in Summer with spectacular sunsets and breath taking views of the Azure Window, cliffs and the Fungus Rock while sailing in or out of this sheltered natural bay.

    ‘Against the Lights’
    The sky glow to the left is light pollution from the mainland, its is very hard to escape it on these small, densely populated Mediterranean islands. I feel that in this image the Milky Way seems like confronting artificial lights on the left. The boat is small, but long exposure made its light and reflection look massive!

  • Our prints are produced on high quality Fine Art Smooth Cotton 300gsm paper. Smooth Cotton is an acid and lignin free paper made of 100% cotton, making it archival and perfect for giclée printing. The paper has a matte, velvet finish and we specifically chose this paper as it yields high saturated colours with no reflections, making it ideal to be displayed behind glass. In fact, matte paper is the easiest to view in all lighting conditions with richer blacks and more vibrant colours.

    Giclée printing is the combination of high resolution inkjet printing technology, K3 pigment based inks and archival fine art paper. The result is a superior quality, finer resolution print with more accurate colour reproduction. The combination of pigment based inks and archival paper gives the prints a long life-time. Pigment inks are more stable and thus resist fading much longer than dye-based inks. If properly stored or displayed, a pigment-based print on quality paper can last a 150 years and more.

    A 2” (50mm) white border is added to the prints to facilitate handling and framing.
  • Please note that we ship unframed fine art prints and gallery blocks worldwide.
    Custom framing is only available for Malta orders.

    Custom Framing
    Our frames are custom made for each order and we offer four kinds of frame profiles - a smooth finish and a wood textured finish in black and white. All are deep box frames, helping the overall finished framed fine art print to stand out. Read more about Our Custom Framing here.
    The wood textured box frame is 15mm wider than the clean/smooth finish box frame and is therefore recommended for the larger sized prints.

    Gallery Blocks
    For those who want a finish with no glass, a gallery block is a giclée print, mounted inside a 40 mm deep frame with a slim 6 mm border around the photo. A matt lamination film layer is added on top of the print, protecting it from dust and scratches. This enables you to carefully wipe the print with a damp cloth, without damaging the artwork. Read more about Our Gallery Blocks here.
