Weeping Willow

This weeping willow stands at the corner of the pond in the centre of our hamlet, illuminated by one of our four (count ’em) street lights.

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 24 – Light

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.

Thursday Doors: Abu Dhabi (last time)

This week’s door may be unspectacular, but holds a special significance. It’s the entrance to the apartment in Abu Dhabi where we lived for ten years (2002-2012). Good memories and no regrets.


And, to be fair, the view from inside looking out on the other side wasn’t too bad:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

I’ve been waiting ages for an excuse to post this picture. Taken from the balcony of my apartment in Abu Dhabi during a particularly spectacular thunderstorm.
