Photographer's Note

As I live in Kuwait for nearly a year I thought it is time to finally post a photo from here too. It was not until 2 weeks ago that I actually didn’t take a single shot of this country. Luckily my friend Daniel has made me to go out with the camera and change it. This is the most interesting thing that Kuwait has to offer – Kuwait towers. It is the most recognized symbol of this country same as Tower Eiffel in Paris or London Bridge.

The Kuwait Towers are three towers of reinforced concrete in Kuwait City. The main tower is 187 metres high and serves as a restaurant and water tower. It also has a Viewing Sphere which rises to 123 meters above sea level and completes a full round turn every 30 minutes. The second tower is 145.8 metres high and serves as a water tower. The third tower houses equipment to control the flow of electricity and illuminates the two bigger towers.

This photo was taken shortly after sunset. You can actually see few clouds on the sky which is phenomena that appears for only few days over the winter months. Otherwise we have only blue, blue, blue sky here. You might get a feeling that those towers stand in front of the swimming pool rather than on the shore. That is one of typical things here in Kuwait - the sea hardly ever moves, it is generally as calm as small pond. In short – not too much potential for dramatic photos here…

I have used tripod and ND filter to balance the light.
