As we move from autumn into winter, Kuwait got a much-needed wash yesterday. Yes we had some rain since early November, but it was more falling-mud than water droplets.  Yesterday was different… it cleaned everything including the air.   The horizon at sea was razor sharp.

Driving around last night, Kuwait was glistening.  Our streets, buildings, trees and lamps, all washed off last year’s settled dust.

I’ve been planning these shots for quite some time now.  In fact, I’m embarrassed to admit that I bought the clear umbrella – for this very purpose – back in 2006!  I had one thing in mind  after taking this photograph of Tower Bridge London:  I need to have an image that says: Rainy Kuwait.


  1. What a chilly season. I liked the first image, it served your purpose brilliantly. We are still waiting 4 a gush of rain down in Dubai 🙂

    • I hope you get it soon 🙂
      Thank you for your visit.

  2. amazing shots .. creative 😉

  3. You can’t be blamed for that! Thats an amazing shot, I bought equipment from over a year ago that I haven’t used yet and i’m annoyed because I want it for the right environment or shot!

    • Thanks. I’m intrigued 🙂 Post the result when you get the shot you’re after…

  4. i love this shot!

  8. I like the first pic the best – are you still working on this? Is it the image you had in mind? Do you have shots in mind for the next rainy shoot?

    I could smell the clean air as you described it!
