It’s the sunset again, without the sun this time.
Bahrain’s Tubli coast is not known to attract very many migratory birds and certainly not during this time of the year when temperatures are touching 40C.
However, this pretty bird (looks like a Japanese crane) seemed oblivious to the hot weather and ventured out into the open sea looking for food.
The setting sun, the brilliant orange and the ‘lone ranger’ make for what I thought an interesting composition.
However, I wonder what’s made this beautiful creature stay behind when all of its friends are perhaps in far away lands, soaking in the cooler summer sun!
Strange are the ways of nature!
This is a beautiful Bahrain sunset – yet again. This is one magical aspect of this tiny island nation, and each time I step out with the camera, it creates an extremely vivid, and unreal feeling.
This quote by John Ruskin sums it up beautifully:
At sunset, nature is painting for us….day after day….pictures of infinite beauty!

There’s certainly something magical about Bahrain sunsets. Every time one goes to photograph the scene, one runs into something different and awe-inspiring.
This time, I encountered these riders and their horses galloping into the beautiful golden glow.
That apart, there were birds, the rapidly fading light and the low tide, which collectively gave the area a surreal and dreamy look.
One would reckon there’s nothing much to photograph in Bahrain but, yes, the sunset’s are sure not part of that thought!
