Photographer's Note

Dhow and the Sheik Hamad Causeway in the background.

At the early morning we were strolling along the promenade of Manama to the north when see this lonely dhow. For many centuries, boats that sailed on the Indian Ocean were called dhows. Almost all of them used a triangular or lateen sail arrangement.
