365 Project : Day 231

One of the best new year celebrations I had. We spend a coupe of days in a large private villa in The Cove Rotana Beach Resort in Ras Al Khaimah. The villa includes 3 big bedrooms, a large hall, cool dining area, balconies, equipped kitchen and a fantastic infinity pool. It is located on top a small mountain overlooking the beach. and to top it all, we had a 'ferrari-red' buggy to roam around the resort! This shot is from the terrace beside the infinity pool :) This is my brother Arvin with his new bike. Using 580EXII with an umbrella to light him and capture the sunset at the back.


Happy new year to everyone!!! I wish you all a successful 2011 :)
