It’s like thunder! Lightning…

Lightning in the skies

This isn’t going to turn into “oh my god, did you see the sky” kind of blog. But, oh my god, did you see the sky? Well, no you didn’t. Not these skies above Bahrain. Unless you live in Bahrain too – in which case, hi!

The day after the incredible orangey-pinky sunset I greedily snapped away at, the skies above Bahrain delivered something even more spectacular. A fairly epic thunder and lightning storm.

Bahrain’s weather is rarely at any extreme. Except extremely, unbearably hot in the summer. There’s never any dramatic rain or wind. They’ll be dust. Actual days when the weather prediction is widespread dust. So it’s rare to witness dumpster moving, balcony shaking wind along with a bit of rain and a whole lot of thunder and lightning.

Project 365: 2015 – May Recap

Project 365

It’s nearly 10pm on a Monday evening and I’ve just finished editing a few photos from the weekend, when I remembered I’ve got a blog post sitting in my draft box. Yeah, should finish that and publish it. Then it dawns on me that we’re in June and I haven’t posted my Project: 365 recap for May. Mostly because I had forgotten we started June today.

May was a struggle. After the first couple of weeks of the month, I hit my 365 brick wall and was struggling to find any inspiration in the day-to-day. It’s tough when you don’t really do anything amazing every single day of your life. Though, I know for sure, I’d get completely exhausted by that in no time.

Not giving up! Going to keep on going. Smash through the brick wall and pull myself out of the rut and whatever other analogy works here.

Not long ago I spent a good hour standing in my balcony desperately trying to take a photo of some lightning. Not just some lightning, but an epic lightning and thunderstorm that was going on above my head.

It didn’t go so well. The best I could do was, well, this:

Lightning - the first attempt

One of those blurry could be almost anything shots. Heck, I could have faked that better in Photoshop.
