I first discovered Sarah Alsayegh’s stunning images of Kuwait on Flickr and I’ve been watching ever since. The landscapes she photographs contrast those in my backyard, which makes them all the more spectacular. Just look at the images she’s provided for this post. They might be the five nicest images I’ve ever highlighted on my blog and they’re all from the same photographer! Make sure to check out her website and @sarah_alsayegh instagram feed for more.
While we’ve traded comments on images for a while, it wasn’t until I mistakenly thought we’d ended up in Iceland at the same time that I reached out for a proper introduction. We’ve been chatting back and forth since then and I was quick to include her in this instagram series because I truly believe everybody should be following her stunning photography.
