Think Pink

Lone flamingo meditating at sunset in a lagoon on a stretch of marine protected land on the Jebel Ali coast. Ironically, the flamingo itself was one of the palest I’ve ever seen – almost totally white.

First post in a while, so I picked a favourite. One of many shots taken over the course of one evening spent on the battlements of the old Bal Samand hunting lodge wall shooting down into the lake as the sun set. 4 hours, 2 batteries and 3 memory cards exhausted, and one of the best evenings EVER.

On the Hunt

Great White Egrets fishing at sunset on the Bal Samand Lake in Jodhpur. The lake is man-made, part of the old ruling family’s hunting lodge, and the ruins of the buildings that used to stand in the lake bed before it was flooded are still visible here and there, like in this shot.
