I have taken the same picture from this spot dozens of times but this one last evening is the most unusual yet, thanks to my former colleague and photographer Hameed.
As I stood trying to position myself to take that perfect shot, Hameed turned up as if from nowhere. He had been passing by when he sensed a picture opportunity and stopped, running into me instead.
Not only did he take some photographs of his own, he gave me a few tips and showed some tricks before leaving. Some of those tips and tricks were used in taking this shot, of course with the Nikon mounted safely on the tripod!

We were at the Opera last night. Well, not exactly!
It was only a short trip to take some pictures but there was an ongoing opera at the Bahrain National Theatre and hundreds were present, going by the number of vehicles in the parking lot.
That said, here are some shots taken well into the night.
These show not only the theatre but also the Bahrain National Museum, two of the most “artistic” contemporary building in Bahrain.
One of the pictures also shows Bahrain’s Manama skyline viewed from the theatre and museum complex grounds.
I took Tyson out unusually early this morning for the weekend!
This is because he had unfinished “business” from last night and wanted desperately to go for a walk.
And as we walked on the coast, I saw the sun about to come up. Hurrying home to fetch the camera, I was just in time to capture this beautiful sight of the skies over the Bahrain International Airport.
Though not the first time for me to take such a picture, watching the sun rise is a special experience any day.
