I’m absolutely heartbroken to hear that Malta’s Tieqa tad-Dwejra, more commonly known as the Azure Window, has collapsed during heavy storms.

The natural rock arch is probably best known as the backdrop for Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo’s wedding in Game of Thrones.

I was fortunate enough to visit the site last year, and although I’m not much of a nature boy, it was just the most amazingly beautiful place. Everything was so vividly coloured, as if the saturation was turned up to eleven.

I’m gutted that I’ll never be able to go back and revisit it, but at least I’ll have my memories. And a few photos.

Here’s one I took of the Azure Window in happier times.
