Wordless Wednesday: Isle of Calypso

a rock formation with salt pans in the foreground in Gozo, Malta


One of the beautiful limestone rock formations in Gozo, Malta. The island is also fondly referred to as the Isle of Calypso (Ogygia) from Homer’s Odyssey. According to the Greek epic, Odysseus was detained in the island by the nymph Calypso for seven years. Well, with a view like this, I guess everyone would be tempted to stay.

Gorgeous image -- the limestone is such a warm color and the ocean such a deep blue.

Seven years? That's quite a pit stop. Great shot.

That is beautiful! Looks like you could climb to the top if wanted. It also looks like good fishing grounds. Maybe I should visit!

Happy WW!
