2018-05-16   WATER SHOW IN DUBAI

By | 2018-05-15T19:22:01+00:00 May 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.

2018-05-10   SHEIKH ZAYED MOSQUE IN THE NIGHT

By | 2018-05-07T20:38:15+00:00 May 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.

Sheikh Zayed mosque offers many views which are exciting, as here, from the inside to the nightly scenery outside. There are thousands of artful ornaments and details. One of the top visits in Abu Dhabi.

2018-05-03   WATERSHOW BURJ KHALIFA

By | 2018-05-03T18:55:37+00:00 May 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.

2018-05-02   MALL IN DUBAI

By | 2018-05-01T16:50:32+00:00 May 2nd, 2018|Dubai|

Even the shopping malls in Dubai are an attraction, spacious with many levels and hundreds of shops make the heart beat faster for shopping addicts. I took the opportunity to shoot wide-angle photos which represent the dimension of these malls. And another goodie, the parking is free, no fees to pay. 🙂

2018-04-19   OUTSIDE ABU DHABI SHEIKH ZAYED MOSQUE

By | 2018-04-17T20:30:49+00:00 April 19th, 2018|Dubai|

At such famous buildings, I ask myself the question, what to shoot which is not visible on the web hundred times already. Still, the classical shots have their eligibility, and I photograph them too, but then I try to take some different angels or sceneries. Like here outside the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi which offers a vast area of water-pools, buildings an pillars.

2018-03-05   TOURIST BOAT IN DUBAI

By | 2018-02-27T21:06:50+00:00 March 5th, 2018|Dubai|

Near the Burj Khalifa lies that artificial lake where water shows and boat excursions take place. For me an excellent opportunity for some tripod shots. But suddenly I was exhorted by a guard not to use the tripod anymore. “Taking photos no problem, but not with the tripod” ??  However, after he was aways I did 2-3 additional shots, then removed the tripod and did the shots with the camera placed on the concrete fence. Same result.

2018-02-20   SHEIKH ZAYED MOSQUE IN THE EVENING

By | 2018-02-17T19:51:18+00:00 February 20th, 2018|Dubai|

I think I stayed in this mosque from later afternoon until night. It is one of the buildings I will ever remember. With the beginning of the evening, I tried to capture the light, shining from the arches. The lightning is part of the architecture and harmonized with the colors and structure of the building.

2018-02-14   OUTLOOK TO THE SHEIKH ZAYED ROAD

By | 2018-02-13T20:08:38+00:00 February 14th, 2018|Dubai|

On the 26th floor of the Jumeirah Towers Hotel, you get that great outlook to the 8-lane Sheikh Zayed Road. It’s an auto lovers dream, an extravaganza of a super-highway. Since I had a rental car, it was a pleasure to drive on this road and looking at the buildings of Dubai.

By | 2018-01-28T16:35:48+00:00 February 1st, 2018|Dubai|

Great engineering teams and building firms have built Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. The construction work is impressing. Everything works well made, fastidious and exact ceilings in a significant dimension. Alone the pile is worth a visit, besides of this you get the fastest roller coaster in the world, named Formula Rossa. The ride is like from another planet. At the start, you get eye-glasses for protection, and the drive feels like you get catapulted into a new dimension.
