Sunset


I'm clearing my photos (about half way there) and came across this one last night.  I haven't shared it on this blog before and, with the significance of sunset during this month, I thought it would be nice to post it.  The wonderful weather added two major factors to the composition: great colour and the people on the pier.


Click on the photo to have a look at the larger version (it's a huge one this time). The silhouettes of the people are really interesting, and they put me in a good mood. The photo was taken early October last year.

Very nice shot, like you said the silhouettes of the people looks really good!

What lens were you using?

Thanks. I agree - but not every silhouette. I need to see something happening.

Awesome. I learned about so many sides of Kuwait I had no idea existed. I love coming back to your blog for this reason.

Very impressive, and I would say the same on its timing to have it posted. With what I am reading about the polluted waters poisoning our seas due to negligence it costs Kuwait one of its oldest traditions- Fishing.
