Sails in the Desert

Kindergarden Canopy, near Al Ain, UAE  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved



Like the sails of a dhow billowing in the breeze,
canopies stretch over a kindergarden playground in Al Ain,
 providing shade from the searing Arabian sun.

  2. It astounds me sometimes how similarly you and I see the world! Only a few weeks ago I took a photo of almost identical yellow canopies against a blue sky, using the curves and lines as the key element in the composition.

    You got a much better result than I did though :)
