Blown away

By ColleenA
Good morning from Dubai...
Our Emirates plane arrived late in Manchester last night so we missed our connecting flight to Cape town this morning . So here we are in Dubai overnight at a hotel.
As the internet is limited I thought I would upload an image of a flower i captured in Manchester on my City walkabout with Angela Seager.The wind was quite strong but made the flower petals dance.
A big thank you to Richard (Dickspics) for his UA for yesterdays upload and to everyone who voted and commented.
Have a nice day, I am going to catch up on some sleep now for a few hoursGrinGrinGrin

Dancing petals can often add such interest to a photograph - here is the perfect example!
A beautiful image, Colleen!

All I can remember of my times in Dubai is getting out of a cool plane into a furnace. Lovely lovely shopping though at the airport. I haven't seen it since all the luxurious building have gone up, perhaps one day. (PS, lovely shot of the flower).
