This boat on the Busaiteen coast in Bahrain presents a rather eerie sight, lying as it does a quite a distance from the ‘highest’ point of the tide.
Some local fishermen said thought the derelict boat had been left there by someone who no longer had any use for it, a few years ago, the seawater did reach that area and even beyond.
But, thanks to reckless reclamation and other man-made issues, the sea has now ‘travelled’ away and, even during the highest tide, there is no water for at least a couple of hundred meters.
I wonder then, if the trend continued, would there be any sea left at all in a few decades? That, as they say, only time will tell.
A trip to the hills in Northern India is never complete without several encounters with primates of different kinds and it’s almost always that they have the upper hand over us humans.
They have been known to take off people’s hats and eyeglasses, not to mention making off with food packets and raiding the refrigerator.
But as this set of three pictures show, they cannot have the upper hand against man’s best friend.
For quite some time, this langur family, perched safely on a pine, was waiting for its turn to ‘ransack’ the large municipal bin in Shimla as a pack of dogs went about their business.
They were in for a rude shock when they made their move, thinking the last of the dogs had left. But one from the pack, perhaps hungrier than the others, had decided to stay behind and made his intentions very clear.
It was certainly this dogs day!
A passing car in the background creates a ‘wave’ effect as it ‘bounces’ along on the rocky coastline in Busaiteen, Bahrain. This area is a favourite for amateur photographers who experiment with their cameras to take that perfect picture on different settings. This picture of a ‘beach chalet’, taken long after the sun had gone down, throws up a rather surreal effect.
Taking night shots is challenging but I have done a lot of it lately, mainly to discover some of the “hidden” features of my camera. This picture, of a clear moonlit night and still waters on the Manama cost, close to Bahrain’s financial district, shows the calmness of the night and the almost pin drop silence when the camera clicked.
