Morning at Durrat Al Aroos

A peaceful early morning shot at the marina at Durrat al Aroos, north of Jeddah.  As we sat in the boat preparing to go out to sea, I kept hearing splashing in the water near me.  I looked over and saw large areas of the otherwise calm water fluttering.  It turns out that it was hundreds of little sardines that were trying to escape the jaws of larger fish below them hunting for their breakfast.  Above the water, dozens of seagulls waited for the sardines splashing on the water's surface.  They dove down and successfully caught their snacks.  It was quite fascinating.

Jeddah: Busy Street Scene

I love this busy street scene of Jeddah.  It's colorful and has a lot going on with the traffic, the businesses, the signs, and the men walking.

Jeddah: Business Signs

Many of the business signs here in Jeddah are quite colorful and many have tons of graphics on them to indicate the type of products they offer.  Because there are so many foreigners here who don't speak or write Arabic, the graphics are necessary.  In my opinion many of the signs are too busy with too many pictures and too much writing.
