Summer Sunset

October 20th, 2012

Clearly, I’m not yet entirely ready to let go of summer.

This young couple was deep in conversation, sat at the edge of the infinity pool, with the mountain range extending before them, bathed in the gorgeous light of the setting sun. What with the lighting (those colours!), the near-perfect symmetry of the scene (the wine glasses!), and the reflections in the mirror-like water, I couldn’t resist snapping away.

Seen at Montagnou, a great restaurant nestled high in the mountains of Lebanon, in the Ouyoun-el-Siman/Faraya area.

More coming soon!

Hatta Rock Pools

June 5th, 2010

The UAE holds quite a few natural wonders for an adventurous spirit to explore. One of them is that of the rock pools in Hatta, an enclave of Dubai.

The remote Hajar mountains make for a lovely setting to enjoy a walk, a picnic and possibly even a swim in the cool waters of the pools.

Here are a few pictures of my last venture out there, early in January of this year.

I was impressed at the number of people out visiting the area despite it being a weekday. Also at the variety of nationalities. French, English, Emirati and other Arab nationals were all out enjoying the day in the sun.

More pictures soon!
