Colours of Bahrain

One of the best and most endearing images of Bahrain I have ever taken. Shot from a chopper, this picture of the Galali neighbourhood near the Bahrain International Airport, is what most people arriving into the country will see from the sky as they approach to land.
I have been in the area scores of times but all that colour visible from the air makes it an unbelievable sight. The sheer number of colours, the Lego-like blocks of houses, the satellite dishes and even some traffic make it a surreal sight. The splash of colour also adds to Bahrain’s “Happy Place” image.
