Falcon in the Desert


I had an enjoyable experience yesterday photographing a falconer on the sand dunes of the Eastern Province of  Saudi Arabia (despite the fact I was up at 3am for the shoot, he adds).

Again, no time to chat as we’re racing off to a world heritage listed site but here’s one of the images that’s likely to make the cut (above) and a black n white version I quite like (below).

Two more days of what is proving to be a whirlwind tour of the Kingdom and I’m back to Riyadh to present two workshops on tourism photography at the national photography conference – Colours of Saudi Arabia. I’m looking forward to it.
