This is the last bus heading back to the Al-Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve centre. This park, were you can see all of Bahrains desert animals, is mentioned as one of the highlights of Bahrain in Lonely Planet's Arabian Peninsula (they really need to upgrade that guide).
It's a well maintained park and the animals have lots of freedom and look relaxt. The bus tour takes you further in the park with narration in Arabic and English. Entry into the park is very cheap.
It is located some 30km to the southwest from Bahrains capital Manama, not far from the F1 circuit. On the road from Manama to the park, you will pass the university. It's also quite interesting wandering around this institute. More on that in a few days...

Hi Gilbert, I love this photo the yellow & orange sky is stunning & i think it is well composed, people may say it's a little dark but i think it adds to the atmasphere, a great shot, kind regards Wilson.

A nice, rich atmospheric shot, Gilbert. I like the warmth and subdued quality of the light. I couldn't help wondering what it would look like with just a little more light in the dark areas , so I did a workshop, just to see. I think it adds interest. What do you think? Regards kevin

Oeh, sure love that sun setting behing the palm leaves, it creates a kind of romantic glow over an ordinary shuttle bus. Must've been a sweet ride with a nice view.
Ergens vind ik de bus op de voorgrond wel leuk, ik denk alleen dat ik zelf de palmtoppen met de zon had uitgeknipt om daar meer focus op te zetten.
Desalniettemin: NICE SHOT! :)

This one a nice pic. I would lighten it up a tid bit. It seems a little to dark. The sun is excellent, it hurts just looking at it in the picture, but i think the background is important. SHow some of it
