I was up at 0445 this morning and by 0545 I was already at the fishing village of Marsaxlokk watching the vendors erecting their stalls for the usual Sunday open air market. The large variety of fruit on sale provided quite a spectacle with their different colours.

    As Always, your lighting is magical! You have captured that sun-glow so beautifully! XXSUEXX

  • Thank you Sue. Light is what I look for when out taking photographs. The early sunlight is best as it hits your subject from a low angle and does not produce harsh contrasing shadows.

    Beautiful light…Reminds me of the old master’s paintings :-)

  • Hi Rusty. The chiaro scuro effect (light and dark) is what I try to imitate. One of my most favourite late 16th to early 17th century painters was the Milanese Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (not to be confused with the Michelangelo of the sistene chapel!) who excelled in this technique.
