Saudi Arabia - Dusk on Jeddah Corniche

By lucinka
Jeddah (also spelled Jiddah, Jidda, or Jedda; Arabic: جدّة‎ Ǧiddah) is a Saudi Arabian city located on the coast of the Red Sea and is the major urban center of western Saudi Arabia. It is the largest city in Makkah Province, and the second largest city in Saudi Arabia after the capital city, Riyadh. The population of the city currently stands at over 3.4 million. It is considered the commercial capital of Saudi Arabia and the wealthiest city in the Middle East and western Asia. Jeddah is the principal gateway to Mecca, Islam's holiest city, which able-bodied Muslims are required to visit at least once in a lifetime.

This shot is taken on Jeddah Corniche shortly after sunset.

Hi Lucie, great impact shot for me. I've worked in Saudi for a few years and this shot brings it all back, the good and the bad times!
