One of my goals for this year is to challenge myself a bit more than the last couple of years and go out and shoot for myself more often. The main reason I started this blog all those years ago (13 and counting) was to have a place to post my photographic experiments and to have a record of all my growth as a photographer. This year will mark some big changes in the gear I am using (more on that very soon), which also means I have to readjust to the way I am shooting and using that gear.
In that spirit this weekend I spent a few days out in the Rub Al Khali desert shooting and playing with some equipment I don’t use very often. I came back with some images I am really happy with and with a renewed energy and love for photography. If you’re having trouble figuring out what exactly are you looking at in the image above, the lower third of the image is the high part of the sand dunes, the middle is a huge slope (150-200 meters) and the top third is a sabkha (a salt flat).
