Comino, formerly called Ephestia, is a very small island of the Maltese archipelago between the islands of Malta and Gozo in the Mediterranean Sea, measuring 3.5 square kilometres in area. Named after the cumin seed that once flourished in the Maltese islands, Comino is noted for its tranquility and isolation. It has a permanent population of only four residents. One priest and one policeman commute from the nearby island of Gozo, to render their services to the local population and summertime visitors. Today, Comino is a bird sanctuary and nature reserve. Administratively, it is part of the municipality of Għajnsielem, in southeastern Gozo.

Indeed, something for the daredevils.
There's even a sign that forbids it.
Taken from a very good point of view.
Best regards, Paul

Fascinating place to pass on our walk. The place where the youth meats each other to sunbath, to talk with each other but also to impress. Where the brave boys put themselves out to conquer the girls and that they dare to deny the diving prohibitions.
Lovey stop of our walk.
Have a nice Sunday.

Wow! Great action! Good capture of so expressive moment, Krzysztof! As always perfect composition and excellent quality. I like to swimm, but this amusement is not my cup of tea. Pozdrawiam! Serghei

What youngsters would do to impress the girls? Krzysztof, and the mighty rocks are just what they need to for that reason, climb and jump.
Found a superior POV for this scene, well done.

Amazing POV and decisive moment wxhen the jumper is in the air before diving, though it seems it's forbidden!
My best regards

This looks a bit dangerous to me, but the jumping boy gave you a chance for an exciting photo. You timed him perfectly and it's a good composition with very good light and colours.

I am a good swimmer and good diver, but I think the man takes risks on this height.
Also a nice beach place for enjoy of the sun.
Composition and presentation is very nice.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

The distance between the cliffs and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well the dare devil action of the jumper. The point of view is showing the details of the cliffs. Have a nice day.

C'est un endroit où les jeunes doivent s'en donner à coeur joie. Quand bien même ce ne serait que pour impressionner les filles. Le moment est parfaitement capté.

Nie wiem, czy to show dla turystow, ale amatorzy to tam chyba nie skacza, fajnie złapany gosc w powietrzu, eleganckie zdjecie

Good timing to capture the brave diver in the act.
I'm a bit surprised to see so many sunbathers below.
ourania (51103) 2016-12-04 11:14
you captured the scene with excellent timing, the clarity is excellent and the viewer can appreciate the formations and textures of the shore as well as the activity in it. It's fascinating to watch the diver in the air and the others waiting for their turn. It's intriguing to see how some of the people on the shore are captivated while others look indifferent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Hello dear Krzysztof,
What a wonderfull capture taken with perfect pov and timing.
A secene full of adrenalin and dynamism.
TFS and best regards

You captured the diver/jumper in midair, the others oblivious to his acrobatics. Now here is an In flight shot from the other side of the globe from two years ago.

cześć Krzysiu, No, top Ci się świetnie udało, złapałeś tego śmiałka w świetnym momencie. Ale ja bym tego nie zwała odwaga, ale raczej głupotą. Trzy zakazy skoków i nurkowania lekceważą, ryzykuja życiem lub kalectwem i po co, żeby zaimponować dziewczynom, a dziewczyna chłopakom, ze nie jest gorsza? Ale zdjecie super, milo popatrześ na te opalone golasy gdy za oknem ponuro,
abmdsudi (58220) 2016-12-05 1:42
Beautiful and dramatic shot, how difficult and dangerous a task this may be with this incredible timely captured showing death-defying cliff divers leaping deep down off a jagged rock face. It's between life and death really, may God bless them and their families, Amen. Superb shot, Congrats
gervaso (16813) 2016-12-05 3:13
Impressive capture of this brave man jumping from the rock! It reminds me of a photo I posted a long time ago from Acapulco, Mexico. The framing is perfect to show it, and the sharpness is very good! Very nice job!
ktanska (29443) 2016-12-05 10:16
No way I could have guessed that such wild action happens on the island of Comino. Stunning composition with the opening to the sea between two cliffs. And perfect timing. That diver is frozen high up on tilted position.
Tue (43862) 2016-12-06 1:08
This must be a great place for daredevils and the cliffs are quite crowded despite the warning signs. Great view of all the sunbathers on the rocks and the view of the open sea beyond the rocks. The timing was excellent and you captured the jumping boy very well in mid-air.
Periko (6382) 2016-12-07 13:16
The horizon is a little tilted to the left, but the composition itself is great, showing these brave young men in this impressive and dangerous environment.
PiotrF (23132) 2016-12-08 13:51
Czyzby tam byl zakaz skokow do wody?
Dobry moment i ciekawa ilustracja maltanskiej plazy.
mcmtanyel (29636) 2016-12-09 21:55
This is a nice close-up of the peninsula where it looks cut. From this angle, the jumper looks like he's going to fall on the rocks, I hope he cleared them.
mkamionka (40089) 2016-12-15 8:14
odwaga czy glupota?
Moj kolega z pracy powiedzial mi ze dwoch chlopcow z jego rodziny zginelo w taki wlasnie sposob. Znakomita scenka. Pieknie wypatrzona szczelina, zblizenie pozwala dostrzec co sie dzieje i docenic skale: ludzie wydaja sie przy niej tacy malutcy.
Oczywiscie chlopak uchwycony w powietrzu dodaje smaku tutaj.
Swietny moment, gratulacje!!!
