I love long country walks but the summer puts me almost totally in aestivation mode as far as this activity is concerned. But on the rare days when I get up early it's off on a bus up to Rabat or Dingli and then making my way home on foot through the dry summer landscape. Granted - the dry drab Maltese landscape can be somewhat dull in the summer but the early morning still has its magic as these pictures testify.

Lonesome pine - Dwejra Lines
Verdala Palace floating in the mist
Magical misty tour...
Girgenti valley looking crisp and lush after the first rainfall
And it's off to work for this early rising farmer...
