Al Ain Weather and Me

Being a city photoblogger, I get a chance to record so many things about Al Ain and that includes the weather. And if you're a regular follower of Al Ain City Daily Photo Facebook page (oh! do click the like icon if you're not-thank you!), I'm quite sure that you have already seen most of the photos posted herein. Having said that, I assume you all know that I'm loving the weather these days.

For the past few weeks, especially when the fog started to appear and enveloped the city, I started taking photos whenever I get the chance. There was a time, around the last week of January, when I had a flu because I took photos as early as 05:30 AM without wearing any cardigan or jacket to keep me warm. How stupid of me to do that. Yeah right! Ahhh! The crazy things I do for the love of photography and photoblogging. :)) Even if I don't have my DSLR camera with me, I make sure that my ever reliable mobile camera does the job. Here are some of the photos that I would like to share with you.

January 23 and 24, 2013 (phone cam)

yesterday (February 2, 2013)- gloomy sky in the afternoon showing the chance of having rain showers

last night (February 3, 2013) at around 11:00 PM-light to moderate rain showers at Al Mutaredh District

today (February 3, 2013) Windy and sunny but partly cloudy

I turned these photos into B&W to make a different perspective
It is a fact that it seldom rain here in Al Ain, and when it does, it is certainly a cause for celebration and an opportunity for photo enthusiasts like me to capture the amazing movements of water, rain drops, and sand including the dust and wind.

There's a sunshine after the rain....literally! Sure, I love the rain but I feel sad knowing that it is a sign of impending summer. A reminder that summer is just around the corner!

A blessed Sunday to ya'll. Enjoy the rest of the day. Salaam!


  1. Here's wishing you more rainy days just enough to fill your heart with joy :) Whatever season there is in Al Ain City you always capture the sky and ground day and night magnificently! :)

    1. Oh! You're so sweet Doc sis Zen. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for sharing the foggy misty Al Ain. I have never an idea that Middle east can be that much cool too in winters. Very nice photographs you have got. Only from trees i can recognize that its Middle east.
    How much degree that time in fog?

    1. Hi Kiran. Thanks for your kind comments.
      Before coming to Al Ain, I never thought that the weather can be foggy and cold at times. It was around 7 to 10 degree Celsius.

  3. These are all fantastic, but I especially love your fog photos!

    Hello again, J! :)

    1. Hi Ms. Hilda! I'm glad you dropped by. Thanks!
