Kuwait - Light trails towards Kuwait Towers

Newer Older

The Kuwait Towers are three towers of reinforced concrete in Kuwait City. The main tower is 187 metres high and serves as a restaurant and water tower. It also has a Viewing Sphere which rises to 123 meters above sea level and completes a full round turn every 30 minutes. The second tower is 145.8 metres high and serves as a water tower. The third tower houses equipment to control the flow of electricity and illuminates the two bigger towers.

I live in place called Bneid al Gar, which is area very close to city center, beach and Kuwait towers. I’ve chosen it purposely as it is nicely convenient and I have lovely sea view I wanted to have coming over to Kuwait. Unfortunately this is not the view I have from my building (I’ve posted one recently), but I realized there must be a great view of the Kuwait towers just from the building next door with the Gulf road offering nice possibility for long light trails from passing cars. I’ve decided to do my usual trick - get into the building and try to reach the roof, which unfortunately was closed this time. I have however met kind Kuwaiti man that had asked harris (man that normally looks after a building) if he could open the top floor for me and he was kind enough to do that (and being it in Kuwait, no baksheesh was asked, I cant imagine how much they would ask for such a favor back in Egypt ) And at last not least, I really wonder why it took me 2 years to find this spot, best things can be sometimes just behind the corner… now I just have to watch out for some clouds to give it bit more dramatic and dynamic feel, sad thing is that it might take few months to be lucky…
