2019-09-27 ENTRY OF THE MOSQUE IN ABU DHABI

The first stop in Abu Dhabi was the Sheikh Zayek Grande Mosque. I wanted to capture additional details of this magnificent building in photos. Here I stood in front of one of the beautiful entrance gates wherein the background the buildings in the courtyard merged into a harmonious whole.

2019-01-05   WATER GAMES ON FIRE

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.

2018-07-12   INSIDE A MOSQUE IN ABU DHABI

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

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.

2018-05-16   WATER SHOW IN 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

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.
