Tuesday Photo Challenge: Cat

Frank was probably thinking more about domestic pets for his theme this week of ‘Cat’. However, we haven’t had a pet cat since the late eighties, so we will have to settle for another member of the feline family, rather higher up the food chain.

This cheetah was in the game reserve on Sir Bani Yas island in Abu Dhabi. They’re very elusive (as well as rather noble-looking), so we were lucky to be able even to see one in the flesh, let alone to get close enough to capture a halfway decent image.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Public Transport

Not all forms of public transport are stressful, commuting nightmares. This is the catamaran which ferries guests from the mainland to Sir Bani Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

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: Sunset

This giraffe in the game reservation on Sir Bani Yas island in Abu Dhabi has no idea that the setting sun makes it look like it’s wearing a golden crown.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Outdoors

Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is ‘Outdoors’.

In the broadest terms, I suppose that any image that wasn’t actually captured in an interior would qualify. However, in this shot – another from Sir Bani Yas island in Abu Dhabi – I’ve gone for more of a ‘great outdoors’ feel, which is certainly enhanced by the moon hanging over the landscape.
