Award Shortlist   


By gpimages
A dual purpose upload today. Firstly another image from my mini series of travel and places I have lived, and since we have some shadows and it's Saturday, a Saturday shadows effort too.

A change from my usual landscape images, this is a shot taken when I lived in the UAE, of a crazy shamal (sandstorm). These things just come from nowhere without almost any notice but when they do the desert sand stings and visibility can be down to the hand in front of the face - literally.

Thank you for your comments and votes for 'Iced Water' and specially to Mike (mike 9005), Glenn (gconant) and Alfie (Alfie_P) for your Awards - brilliant, thank you!

Trying to return to the Tardis?
A shot that could only be taken wide angle, I have experienced this many years ago in Jordan. This capture the disorientation, it's a weird experience.

A fine capture, Graham, really shows off the windy conditions, and combined with sand flying about, not the best for the camera! 😲 At least you have the Saturday Shadows there, a bit lacking around here again... 😃

When the wind blows so hard the sand blows with it. Love the way you've composed this with the box on the right and the two ladies interacting.

A beautifully balanced composition and a monochrome that speaks for itself.
