Power Line-up

Powerful Line-up

It’s the summer in Bahrain and it’s simply too hot, in 45 degrees C plus temperatures, to go out and take pictures. There are, in any case, no real subjects to snap for at least a few more weeks so I am digging into my archives to bring out some of the pictures I have taken at random over the last few years.
This line-up of pigeons was spotted late in the evening on a power cable near the Golden Temple in Amritsar, India during a visit to the Vatican of the Sikhs in the summer of 2010. Birds fly all day in search of food but before they set off and just before they return, they tend to get together in droves making that sometimes-irritating ‘chattering’ sound that can bring the house down. It’s an even more beautiful sight if these birds line up on a power or telephone line, giving the impression that are all-powerful and in control.
