Seasonal flowers in full bloom on the street walk on a crisp winter morning in Bahrain’s capital, Manama.
Such colours are seen only in the cold months, particularly in January and February, after which it starts to get warm.
The extreme desert heat after that makes it almost impossible for such beauty to flourish.
A crisp winter evening, clear skies and hardly anyone on this rather artistic wooden walking bridge over the Arad Bay in Bahrain makes for an interesting ‘capture.’
Hundreds of people would normally be here every evening but the 13 degrees ‘chill’ is perhaps keeping most away. That’s, of course, ‘cold’ by Bahrain standards!
The weather’s turned nasty. Cold, windy and dusty. Unhealthy, in other words. This is usual during what we call the winter here in Bahrain. But when it begins, it hurts as if it’s the first time it’s happened!
This is the view this evening from my living room window and it’s now gotten worse, with the wind howling like a banshee. It surely is going to get worse, before it turns better!
