Abu Dhabi Harbor

 
The main harbor in Abu Dhabi is located near Port Zayed on the north-eastern tip of the island. I’ve taken you here before (to the fish market). Here you see the wheelbarrows and fish baskets that transport the daily catch from the dhows to the market.

I absolutely love this shot! Although I haven't seen the fishing boats here using wheelbarrows, the sailboat marina where people live on board their boats supplies them at each dock for people to transport gear and belongings on and off board. I love seeing the color of the water, especially with the rusty red of tat boat hull. Thanks for letting us hang out in one of my fave settings on a sunny day. . .only it is in Abu Dhabi instead of here.

Thanks everyone, and especially Kim, who particularly liked this shot. I too love this one and I still can't get over the neatness of everything. I’d tagged it under ‘my personal favourites’, which not many of my photos achieve.
