Just when you thought winter packed its bags and left the country, it starts raining hailstones. This is not as uncommon as one would think, it happened before. I took this photo a bit late, the hailstones were tiny, I’m sure someone out there took photos of bigger hailstones.
There are tons of landscape photos of Kuwait out there and they’re no longer impressive for the most part. This one however, I liked because of the fogy-ness there is to it, something I rarely see in a wider perspective. With winter approaching this will be a common scene, didn’t know it looked this good from afar.

Nothing answers that question more accurately than a cooked egg on Kuwait’s street in the super sunny weather. Although I’m against wasting food this picture flawlessly depicts our weather situation. I found this photo on Facebook and am trying to find the photographer behind it but haven’t been able to yet.
I like to believe Kuwait occasionally passes by 4 seasons in a day. Without doubt it has one of the most random weather forecasts out there. Yesterday we got a rainy weather, followed by a dusty one and then back to normal in 24 hours. What mystifies me is the consistency of having a dust storm strictly on weekends, as if the dust storms are scheduled.
This startling photo was taken from a plane that happened to be passing by. It is just breathtaking seeing this right in front of your eyes. I’ve searched everywhere for more photos of raining skies shot from a high angle but couldn’t find any. I don’t know why photographers don’t take similar photos but I guess this is a rare sight.[Twitter]
Blogger Mathai took one of my favourite thunder photos two days ago. At the time of the raging weather I wanted to have a power nap and that wasn’t such a good idea. The lighting was so massive you could feel the floor shake an inch at times. I’d rather have thunder than dust though, no questions there.
It was around 3 in the morning when it first started. At first it sounded as if someone in rage was knocking on the window so rapidly. But then I saw the thunder and figured it were raining huge dots of water. Went outside only to be pained by the icy weather. This is the first time I see this happen in Qurtoba specifically. They were fairly small but in other locations they were so big they’d damage cars, similar to the one above.

I found an amazing gallery of shots taken in Antarctica. It’s a collection of the best photo’s taken there, some go back to 2008. There is just so much beauty the naked eye has yet to see. I think these shots were taken by both tourists and scientists. I want to start learning photography soon, it’s a pricey hobby but the sheer joy of taking a breathless photo is indescribable.[Gallery]
