Clay Slopes. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

I’m still nursing a cold, so this weekend I had to forgo my usual walk. Additionally, last week I didn’t take any photos either. So for today’s post I’m sharing another photo from a walk in Qammieħ about two months ago. With some luck I’ll get to walk and shoot again soon.

I knew I’d like this photo before I pressed the trigger, but it took some work after that. For some reason I wasn’t happy with the first edit, or the second. I kept revisiting the photo over several editing sessions, never quite happy with the result. Eventually I decided that simplest is best, and kept the processing to a minimum, and was finally content.

I’m sure I said before that this is a place I’ll want to revisit again at different times of day (and different seasons). The place has considerable photographic potential, and it’s just a pleasure to walk down the cliffs to the water’s edge.

    1. They are a lot of fun. But not after the rain. They get slippery as anything and really really muddy. Last time I went exploring one of these places, I had to use winter techniques to move (kicking steps in the clay etc).

      This particular place, though, in Qammieħ, I haven’t been in very long. Due for a revisit ☺️

      1. I wouldn’t want to be there in the rain. The one time I hiked on this material when it was wet it stuck to the soles of my shoes and piled up 10cm thick before it fell off. Incredibly exhausting.

      2. Exactly. In my case I was hiking there after the rain. It was so heavy.
