Tuesday Photo Challenge: Peace

When we lived in Abu Dhabi, our go-to place for a little peace and relaxation was the Sir Bani Yas Hotel in Abu Dhabi. This was the swimming pool.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Vista

Frank’s theme for this week is ‘Vista’ and, inspired by the photo he used in his own post, I have gone with a seascape from the coast of New South Wales – somewhere in the Sydney area, but I can’t remeber exactly where.

Red railing

You could argue all night about what is the photographer’s greatest friend, but I’d have to say that a red foreground object must be among the frontrunners.

Imagine how dull this picture would be without that red railing.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

Ambience: the sense of a place. This is poolside at the hotel on Sir Bani Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Quite possibly one of the most relaxing places we have ever been to (several times).
