Photographer's Note

I was originally going to post another photo from my Yemen trip, however I’ve just returned from long weekend in Dubai and spend some lovely time on a desert safari (among other things). Some of the photos I’ve taken are very graphical and create nice result which I thought I’d share with you. Nice thing about desert around Dubai is that the sand is orange with very thin layer of red sand on the top which adds additional richness to the overall color. This photo offers different desert view than my two previous post from
Yemen and Iran . I wonder which one you like the most.

Desert safari in Dubai is very touristic thing to do, but it is big fun too. They generally stop at some lovely place just before sunset and give you a chance to take some photos with a wonderful light too.

A trip to the desert offers a real adventure into the magnificent landscape of the unique sands of Arabia. This safari tour takes you right into the heart of the desert where you experience the excitement of a roller-coaster tour down the astonishing high dunes. A stop for a breathtaking view of the endless desert gives an opportunity to watch the sun-set over this tranquil scenery.

Afterwards you reach the camp where you can board on the 'ship of the desert ' and where you can enjoy the contrasts of a desert night. Here you can get an unique insight into the traditional life of the Bedouins. Dress yourself in the traditional Arabic dress, enjoy the freshly made Arabic sweets, try the 'hubbly-bubbly' and the henna painting and learn about the important role that falcons are playing here in the local life…..and if you had enough activities just laze around on the carpeted ground or wander around the camp and enjoy the silence of the desert.
There is a delicious BBQ dinner with grilled specialties cooked on site with choice between a variety of appetizers, salads and sweets and at the end of the evening there is a belly dancer performance. Programs from different agencies vary only little and cost around 40USD. Duration of the trip : 6-7 hours
