Red Sea Sunset


I passed through Jeddah yesterday.  This was my view from the hotel room.  In fact all I saw of Jeddah was this beautiful sunset.


Sometime last summer I started a book and it found its way into a briefcase of mine. I only found it again two weeks ago, and finally finished reading it on the flight yesterday.  The last chapter of Eats Shoots and Leaves by Lynn Truss is about the hyphen, and how it's becoming extinct.  I should therefore point out that the title of this post is Red-Sea Sun-set; not Red Sea-Sun-set.  


Good book if you haven't read it - it's light despite the heavy subject.

Wow! I miss Jeddah. Beautiful shot. After Truss, read David Crystal's How Language pundits ate, shot and left.

Thank you... A true photographer's eye. The colour range is what made me want to take this shot.
