Malta wakes to a spectacular red, pink and orange sunrise

Malta is always beautiful.

But if you were up with the early birds on Tuesday morning, you’d have caught a glimpse of one of the most spectacular sunrises we’ve seen in a long while!

The sky above was simply magical as people in Malta started their day, with vibrant shades of orange, pink and violet across every corner of the island.

And it certainly put a spring in our step coming to work at 89.7 Bay first thing!

The sunrise came less than 48 hours after Malta was hit by hail, heavy rain and hurricane-strength gales, bringing chaos and destruction across the island.

We’ve pulled together 10 of your perfect pictures which captured the dramatic morning sky in all its gorgeous glory.
