Abraj li'Kuwait

When I converted my camera, this was the very shot I couldn't wait to get.  But let's face it, it's always the things close by we tend to take for granted.  This was no different.  I put it off waiting for the weather to become more forgiving.  Last weekend however, I looked out of the window and saw the first clouds decorating our skies.  I jumped into my car, headed into town and, when I parked outside the towers, I realised I had left my tripod on my driveway.

Never mind.  This was a quick test shot day.  These images have encouraged me and given me a flavour of the potential of infrared landscape photography in Kuwait.  Deserts, beaches and the city will never look the same again.  I can't wait to take more, nor can I wait for some drama in the skies to make the images, erm, picture-perfect.  

I'm also pleased to finally get a moment to upload these files and share them with you.  I'm extremely busy for the next few weeks - so do please excuse the longer gaps between posts and my fewer, less frequent comments on your blogs.

The Kuwait Towers are one of the most neglected landmarks of the region... it's unfortunate really because it's one of the few pieces of architecture which started it all in the GCC.
