A few months ago, we heard about this new locale in Jeddah. Green Valley! A place teeming with water. Green grass. And life.
People rave about this place. Some say its a natural water body in the middle of the Arabian desert. Some say the water is processed waste water. The truth is, nobody knows. The latter theory is the most probable.
Anyway. There is water. Flowing water. Maybe a mile long. And there’s fish too. God knows where they came from! An entirely new ecosystem has sprung up. Probably wild dogs are on top of the food chain. And lots of birds. Pity I didn’t have my telephoto.
I did get some shots of the nearby vegetation.
And where there’s vegetation, there are critters!
And like in every ecosystem, new or old, life is always accompanied by death. And here’s something that reminds me of that!
A few photographs on the way To Al Lith, approximately 175 kms from Jeddah.
We actually went to visit the National Aquaculture Company, which has the largest integrated shrimp farms in the world.
Unfortunately, I dont have permission to post pictures taken from there.
Instead, here are some images made during the journey. On the road….

Looking back at my previous posts, it seems the beach is the only place I frequent. Well, Jeddah has a lot of beaches. And what else is there to here except frequent malls and beaches.
Anyway, it’s been more than a month since my last post and I felt I shouldn’t bore anyone with images of the beach or children playing on the beach. But what else is there to photograph the sunset and people playing ?
So here’s my attempt to do away with normal beach photos. Instead I tried my hand at abstracts.

Its been a long while since my last post.
Well, after a rigorous two months of work, I took a break with the family and headed to the beach at Thuwal. It’s around 90kms away from here. Being far from bustling Jeddah, the beach isn’t much crowded and is pretty clean.
There were a few families spread across the straight coastline. Like I have mentioned before, photography isn’t much encouraged here, so I restricted myself to photographing the kids and our immediate vicinity.
And before i forget, my fun was with my Fuji X cameras ! Amazing sooc jpegs !
