Airborne

DSC02290This Ariel picture of Downtown Manama is from March 2009, when I went up in a chopper for the first time. The photographs I took then were some of the best I have. The overall skyline has not changed a lot since then, but for a few more skyscrapers that have come up. And, of course, two of the country’s best-known buildings, the Bahrain Financial Harbour and the Bahrain World Trade Centre, seen in the background, are still as majestic as ever, not matched by any new development.

    Wow!! I have photographed from a plane, and I’ve always had difficulty in small craft. I know for sure I would not do well in a helicopter. My niece, Em, flies helicopters and she has some beautiful aerial footage with her GoPro. I hope to see more of your shots… they’re just stunning from that perspective!

    Thank you. Taking pictures from a chopper is not easy since you have to be strapped into place, legs hanging out. Not everybody’s cup of tea!
