I will have to take a look next month.
Its even more blue in real life, the webcam doesn't do how blue this view really is
I'm not convinced about the filter. The camera is pointing in much the same direction as the one at Xlendi, but the sky is a different colour. I also lived in Malta and visit every year.
5aug18--Glad we established that the sky/water are blue.
Hi Peter :) Thank you for the answer !! The colors here are magnificent. Happy weekend.
Hi Carla and KeithI lived in Malta for 6 years in my early teens and I can assure you that the sea and sky really are that blue. Sometimes the heat haze above the water makes the colours a little more wishy washy to a camera.
This water color is so blue ! Yes I wonder if its a filter also :) beautiful !!
Is there a filter on the lens of the webcam to make everything look more blue?
Beautiful setting with views over the sea, this Popeye Villiage worth keeping it is so attractive.
The sky always looks more blue here than in other Malta/Gozo webcams. Any suggestions why that might be?
Thank you Peter and Sam for the information!
11jun18- Thanks for the info. Peter Keddie. - Movie sets are not build to be long lasting structures, the movie company saved money by not having to remove the set. (IIRC wiki) has a write up of the erecting the sets / how much lumber / how many nails / how many gallons of paint - interesting stuff. EnJoy EnJoy
Hi Phil. Nobody lives here - it is just a film set. The original village was bequeathed to Malta by the film company as a tourist attraction, but it was then nearly totally destroyed by a violent storm. The Maltese government decided it was worth rebuilding as a theme park. There are enactors who take on the roles of Popeye, Olive Oyle, Bruto etc. but they don't live in the village.
A question for you all... this is a village built as a movie set, which then stayed in place? Does anyone actually live here as all I see are tourists walking around it, but not much activity from anyone who looks like a resident?
