A cloudy sky; a beautiful sunset; an even better sunrise, not to mention the rain and the cool weather – that’s what sums up a classic winter day in Bahrain. And, in the past month, we’ve had several such occasions. Rarely has this archipelago seen such pleasant, even cold, weather for so long at a stretch.
The rain Gods have been rather benevolent this time round as well and we’ve had a virtual deluge a couple of weeks ago. Of course, there was the customary inconvenience since we are not used to these rather wet conditions and, more than that, we are not ‘built’ to withstand them.
Notwithstanding the troubles, the mishaps and the hiccups, such weather is custom-made to take pictures and one can get winning shots anywhere. The coastal areas are even better since the sky, and the calm water, act as catalysts to get those perfect shots! The Manama skyline, as usual, offers the perfect backdrop!
I took several pictures over the last few days, one of which is shown here. Will post some more soon and show Bahrain off to those who have not been here. Because, at least in the winter, this is where the Gods are!
