Khorfakkan has a gorgeous beach and the boat ride’s lovely too. I hope you like the photos!
Where the mountains meet the sea
The island at Khorfakkan
So lovely when the water touches my toes…
I added a bit of drama to the sky…
At the beach
It’s the 14th of August, the day Pakistan was born and I pray for my beloved country. For peace, for prosperity, for guidance, and for happiness. For safety in Pakistan, for its people to be protected, for the land to become a haven of safety and security. For resurgence.
Feel free to share the pictorial!
Appearances can be misleading. These were not so great to eat, unfortunately…! Lessons in baking learnt!
I used freshly dessicated coconut, and I added some from the packet too… I think it was the packet one that was probably spoilt the macaroons.
Girls helped out… we made a big mess, but it was fun. I ended up burning them slightly from the base. Oh well, there’s always another time! 🙂
As a kid I loved coconut macaroons. Now my taste is less sweet, more savoury and more bitter… these calorie-laden metallic macaroons were for the girls basically. They weren’t exactly crazy about them. lol
Another lesson learnt — what tastes good raw, may not taste so good when baked! The coconut mixture we prepared was actually quite yummy.
To all readers and friends,
How was Eid? Well, mine’s been a bit boring to be honest. Never mind though, it’s been good to chill out a bit. Ramadan was kinda hectic, yet I am so sad it’s over. Eid ul Fitr is a kind of tug of war for me — on the one hand I’m depressed that Ramadan is over, and then at the same time, I am happy because it’s Eid.
Hope you enjoy the following photos!
So if you think I received all of these lovely flowers for Eid, umm no. I was clicking at the flower arrangements in a hotel. 🙂 Oh and this was before Eid. But I figured this was a good time to share these photos.
Never really photographed flowers before… Not much anyway. I think I’d enjoy it.
Always thought I’d wait for the right camera you know.. DSLR and stuff… but I think my point and shoot ain’t doing too badly here. Especially in bad light.
I feel that detail in this could have better, besides I’m not too crazy about the composition of this picture. Don’t want to whine about the camera…honest
This was a beautiful bunch, flowers make me smile.
I like these tones. You?
As promised, I’m posting the pictures I took in Medina, a city that’s truly special! Some phone pics, quality isn’t the best, but all the same…
What a sight!
Sunrise in Medina
Open umbrellas, view from hotel window
Enter in peace… the mosque of the Prophet (PBUH)
A shot from inside the ladies prayer hall, Bab Uthman Bin Affan (I think)
Peace and blessings on the beloved (PBUH)
Fajr time. I loved this time.
Zam zam? Yes please!
Through the hotel window
The city of Medina glows at night, too.
I’m sure you’ve heard about the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building, and seen the pics in the Burj Series on my blog.
And you saw the architecture at Souk Madinat Jumeirah as well.
Heck, I even brought you the beaches!
It’s now time to see some greenery! Enjoy! 🙂
Yes, some of these are edited and stuff, but a photographer is an artist. It’s a mixture of composition, perspective and feeling. Hope you liked the photos. Do let me know what you think.
