This is a view of Bingemma painted in early morning and showing the rich vegetation of the valley leading down to Mgarr. The beauty of this valley is not of the view itself but most importantly the landscape's natural state of preservation, where the only man made intervention is the solitary chapel that succeeds in enriching it rather than degrading it.
