2019-01-05   WATER GAMES ON FIRE

By |2019-01-05T11:16:34+00:00January 5th, 2019|Dubai|

Spectacular city of Dubai with spectacular water-shows in front of the Burj Khalifa. The lightning appears like water under fire. It starts at about 7 pm, I was in a hurry to get down with the speed lift from the Burj Khalifa. My wife stayed calm, but for me, it was essential to get some decent shots of the water parade.

For this photo, I took my wide angle lens, the Samyang (Rokinon) 14mm 2.8 AF E-Mount and my Sony A7S. This setup covered the panoramic roof, pillars, arcs, and ornaments of the Sheikh Zayed mosque in Abu Dhabi very well.

It even impressed to watch the Sheikh Zayed Mosque from the inside. An artwork of gigantic proportions, a dream for shooting photos. There was no hindering, taking pictures, walking around, exploring, I think I was there for about 4 hours. I discovered the blue hour, the golden hour and the dimming of the night.

2018-07-08   DUBAI WATER SHOW

By |2018-07-08T08:46:46+00:00July 8th, 2018|Dubai|

Since I was visiting the Burj Khalifa before, I was in a hurry to reach the water show at the right time. After entering the ground floor, you need an additional 20 minutes to get out of the tower and position at the best spots for your photo journey. In the end, it worked out on the minute, and I could place my desired photo shots.

I had chosen the right time for Sheikh Zayed Mosque. I witnessed the blue hour, the golden hour and the night time. This photo was one of my last shots before I left the area. I think it was worth it, an impressive view of an impressive building.

2018-05-16   WATER SHOW IN DUBAI

By |2018-05-15T19:22:01+00:00May 16th, 2018|Dubai|

One of the exciting events in Dubai is the water show near the Burj Khalifa. I think it starts at about 7 pm and is a great spectacle. I started with a tripod and was rejected by a guardian immediately, then I had to switch to handheld shooting.

By |2018-05-07T20:38:15+00:00May 10th, 2018|Dubai|

This was the last photo of my session at the Sheikh Zayed mosque. I was impressed by the lighting of the towers and domes. At the exit I took my belongings form a safe and my wife gave back the veil. We went to the parking place and took our way back to Dubai. Even on the highway, I saw many illuminated mosques which were fascinating, I will come back for sure.

2018-05-03   WATERSHOW BURJ KHALIFA

By |2018-05-03T18:55:37+00:00May 3rd, 2018|Dubai|

After a guardian warned me off the grounds because I was photographing with a tripod, I returned to a hand-held session. I was lucky that I reached the right time when the water show in front of the Burj Khalifa started. I had to go back many meters so that I could get the whole tower in the photo. No easy task with the height of 828 meters.
