This week we’re asked ‘what subject do you turn to frequently, more inspired each time?’

Well, I don’t know about the ‘more inspired’ bit, but I do like a nice reflection: as I’ve described it before, Nature’s best buy-one-get-one-free deal. So, here are three images I’ve captured over the past couple of weeks.

The first was taken from a boat on the Dordogne River:

The second is from the same boat trip, but I flipped the image 90 degrees clockwise for a more dramatic efect

Ah, the jet-ski: the noisy scourge of the Abu Dhabi beach. At least this one had the good grace to be a red foreground object.

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

Posted as a response to this week’s Photo Challenge.

Not the most original take on this week’s challenge, but an attractive image nonetheless. Taken at the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

Another image from Dubai Mall, this one of an ornamental pool on the way down to the underground car park (it’s Dubai, what do you expect?)

Photography 101: Edge

The weir on the Vienne river at Confolens provides a clear edge itself, as well as linking the two banks (also edges).
