1/500 at F4.5. Al Ain oasis. Have you been to Al Ain? Have you visited one of the oases? If you have you may be lucky enough to catch a date farmer harvesting the crop. No ladders, no cranes, just one man and his knife and habool – a great sight to see.
F9.5, 5 second exposure, 24mm PC, worlds tallest building Burj Khalifa, New Years Eve night 2011.
F4, 1/200, 24-70mm. Drive towards Carrefour in Bur Dubai, head to Shindagah, go through the tunnel, Hyatt hotel on the left, do a U turn, park and enjoy – Deira Fish market. ALSO! Fruit and vegetable market and dates too, fresh as can be, best prices in town.
There are some great things to see in the United Arab Emirates. One of them is the traditional sport of camel racing. This image was taken at a private track near Al Ain, it is a jockey, live riders are no longer used. 1/640 at F4.5 hand held.
Desert majlis – this one located in the shadow of the Burj Khalifa. I love it that some of the most expensive real estate in the world sits a few hundred yards away from great sights such as this. Hand held 1/320 at F9.5, lens – wide angle PC 24mm.
Sheikh Zayed Mosque at night, sunset shot. Four second exposure at F9, with tripod and cable – shutter release.
Dubai Heritage village, have you been? In Bur Dubai, next to Carrefour, also now with a new Metro station. The recent UAE national day celebrations were held there, some beautiful original houses with wind towers. Go at sunset, enter Creek side. Hand held at F11, shot at 1/200.
Yes, the beautiful Dubai winter skies are back, I thought they’d never come
This image is hand held, shot with my Nikon 24mm wide angle, PC lens can’t say enough good things about this lens! Also - 1/250, F9, ISO 100, taken at 4.02pm. – Downtown Dubai, Emaars beautiful glass buildings opposite Dubai Mall with the Burj Khalifa design on the glass plus here also showing the sculpture, titled ‘Together’, celebrating the uniqueness of Arab culture, by artist Lutfi Romhein.
Dubai airport, home to the worlds fastest growing passenger traffic and the worlds best airline. 0.8 sec at f/9.
1/200 at F9, hand held, in PS i straightened the lines a little (it was shot with the 14-24) and pushed the blacks and the vibrance a tiny bit. Dubai Marina, early morning. The 14-24 is as wide as can be, doesn’t keep lines straight though, but it’s very nice glass. Oh, how i’ve missed you foggy mornings.
