Malta, Fishing Boats

Malta Boats Luzzu

In the port of Mgarr on Gozo  in the shelter of the harbour walls the iconic multi-coloured fishing boats of Malta, called Luzzu were swaying idly in the limpid water of the harbour.

  1. Andrew if I found myself near these boats I should need to be dragged away by my camera strap. Love these colorful images!

  5. Those bright colors must take a beating in the sun and I imagine are sanded and painted every season / year (?) So pleasant on the eyes. 🙂


  6. I simply love that first shot! With the blue above and below, I can almost trick my eyes to think the boats are floating.


  7. I wonder how often they have to repaint the boats.
