This week’s throwback post takes me back to a walk near Selmun in early autumn last year. Part of the coastline between Mistra and Imġiebaħ sees a lot of exposed clay. When it’s dry it’s easy enough to walk (or dry-skid) down these slopes. When it’s soggy I suppose they must be very slippery. In any case, personally I try to stick to the more ‘established’ paths, usually at the edges. Most walkers do the same. Keeping to stony paths helps reduce erosion; it’s also safer.
In any case, I remember this day was very bright, but with intermittent cloud cover. I thought the textures in the sky and the slopes themselves were very particular, so I decided to focus on them, keeping some people in the frame for scale.
