Travel theme: Pale

Pale colors can be really beautiful and for Pale Challange I take you to the United Arabic Emirates, to the beach and to the desert.

February 2010, not so warm and not so sunny, empty beach and sand and sea.

    I agree with everyone else so far–the bottom photo is wonderful! I like the “Sea’ picture too–mysterious and inviting both-

    I love the Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Mosque
    The colour of the sky is different over there….Like the lack of real contrast!

    Beautiful! I’m always amazed at the range of desert colors– I think I expected it to be nothing but sand-colored. Your photos are gorgeous!

    Your pictures are beautiful. They remind me of the artist Morandi’s paintings because of the subtle tones.

    All the pictures are beautiful but my favorite is also the sunset, it has a calming peaceful affect.
