It's summer time once again here in the sandpit. Since there are no beaches here in Al Ain, residents tend to go to Dubai or Abu Dhabi to beat the heat of the sun. Well of course, aside from malling and staying indoors with A/C on almost 24/7.
For me, summer is just perfect to snap sunsets at Jumeirah Open Beach, one of the popular destinations during the weekends just to have a brief respite from the hot and dry weather. It is almost 130 km from Al Ain Town Center. While waiting for the sunset, I tend to watch the people around me.
How about a Chinese reporter covering a story about the Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach..
and Korean kids enjoying the warmth of the sand
while these handsome guys and pretty ladies are paddling at the warm sea water
and tourists busy taking pictures of the Burj Al Arab

And finally, when the sun is setting deep into the horizon, I will focus the shutter with interesting subjects just like this couple holding holds while walking. Oh! I can't help but smile and suddenly I am on a romantic mood.
Word of the day: nafarat is the Arabic word for people. Salaam!
