Madagascan Red Fody

It’s a rainy day here in Dubai. A few days ago on another rainy occasion I managed to snap a photograph of a beautiful little red bird called the Madagascan Red Fody (it is native to Madagascar but has been introduced to other Indian ocean islands like Seychelles and Mauritius). It was drenched in the rain but was still hanging around hoping for some scraps from the neighbours.

The many faces of Burj Khalifa

Ask anyone what they first think of when you say Dubai and the answer may just be Burj Khalifa- the world’s tallest building. It’s a fascinating building that outlines the cityline of Dubai like a heartbeat spike on a monitor. It can also put up quite a show as the entire facade of the building has been installed with LED lighting and can therefore project many colours and designs. Don’t believe me? Take a look

The last full moon of 2016

Photographed a couple of weeks ago…

Much was said about the supermoon in November 2016 but there was a supermoon in December 2016 as well which went by relatively unnoticed. I was out there testing my new m.Zuiko lens and was fortunate to capture this shot (unedited in any way except for cropping).

This NASA article tells you why 2016 ended with three supermoons. Apparently we have to wait all the way until December 2017 for another supermoon.
