I spent almost three hours photographing Kuwait City from Al Hamra Tower yesterday. This magnificent building took me to the highest point in Kuwait on the 74th floor – which I’m told is about 400m high.  I will go through the 300 photos I took with my Nikon over the next few days, and will post the full story with better quality images.  For now, please enjoy this time lapse attempt.  I used a Canon G11 and held it in place, on the scaffolding, using a Gorilla Pod.  The intervals were not regular and I know I missed some of the interesting bits, but I hope it gives you an idea of the elevation and views.  More images soon…

Last week, my work took me to Germany.  It was my first visit to Hamburg.  The trip lasted the typical just-under-two-days, but I did have a free afternoon to look around.

Snow and ice everywhere.  On the day I left (Wednesday) it was snowing again.  Ice floated on waterways and sat stubbornly on sidewalks.  Some lakes were almost completely frozen.  The main Christmas tree on the big lake was still there late February, waiting for the ice to thaw… hopefully before Easter.
