I’m down to the last few photos from my pandemic walks earlier this year. This one is from the cliffs south of Baħrija, known as Rdum tas-Sarġ. I planned a walk starting from Kunċizzjoni, past Baħrija and across its Wied, then along the cliffs for a while, and eventually heading back above Wied Rini. The walk went well, and it was clear several others had a similar thought, to head out to the countryside for some fresh air away from people. More others than I was expecting, to be honest. I even crossed paths with a colleague of mine and his wife, who were out for a walk in the area.
As the path headed out of the valley it reached a col, with the outcrop of Il-Qlejgħa behind me and the thin edge of Rdum is-Sarġ ahead. I scrambled up the outcrop behind me to get a better view, and waited a while for the few walkers around to move on. It seemed, however, these had not met in a while and had much to say, so in the end I gave up, made my photos and continued onwards. When I was processing the photo, however, I thought I’d apply some digital magic to remove the people from the photo, and get the result I intended in the first place. This is the photo you see above. For reference, the edited photo with the people still there is shown below.
