Although I’ve been really busy last week shooting every day for a couple of clients, this Friday I got up very early (5am early!) and headed towards the Empty Quarter at the border between UAE and Saudi Arabia. The Empty Quarter (Rub’ Al Khali in Arabic) is the largest desert in the world and spreads between the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Yemen. It’s a beautiful place, but can be very tough to conquer.
We were in four cars, camping over night and doing a 20km desert route on Friday. It was tough going in a few spots, but with the help of an experienced friend, his awesome raised Jeep Wrangler and a few other useful desert toys, we managed to climb to the top of the dunes to enjoy the beautiful views below us.
As I’ve mentioned in a couple of previous posts, I’m still playing with my tilt-shift lens, experimenting with tilting the focus point. I quite like the result in this one, but I would be interested to hear your opinion.
