All along the Corniche in Abu Dhabi runs a park. There are play areas and plenty of items of architectural interest, including this water feature. I particularly like the contrast between the rigid geometry of the mosaic and the concrete on the one hand and the running (falling) water on the other.
It being Abu Dhabi, naturally enough the sun was shining, so the light, shade and shadow add further interest to the composition.

This week the challenge is to provide an image using light (wouldn’t be much of an image without it, I have to say) but not sunlight.
This photograph was taken from a boat making an evening cruise along the Corniche in Abu Dhabi, just before we left there and moved to France. It was well after sunset, so all the light is man-made.
I used to work on the 23rd Floor of the left hand tower of the featured building. My office had a glass exterior wall, so the view was quite spectacular.

This is a detail from one of the underpasses – each individually designed – that are dotted along the Corniche in Abu Dhabi.
