UAE National Day!

December 2nd, 2009

I think this deserves it’s own post. :)

Today the UAE has completed 38 revolutions around the sun since their formation under the guidance of the late HH Sh. Zayed Al Nahyan.

So in the spirit of celebration, I leave you with two links to awesome HDR shots of fireworks taken by Trey Ratcliff, who runs one of my favourite travel photography blogs, the very excellent Stuck in Customs.

So here they are: a shot of fireworks in a lightning storm; and a shot of fireworks exploding inside a cloud.

Speaking of fireworks – today at around 8:30pm the world’s largest and record breaking fireworks display is expected to light up the night sky in Abu Dhabi. They will be visible along the Abu Dhabi Corniche and across the Emirates Palace Marina. Don’t miss it if you can make it (I’m certainly hoping to)!

Also, don’t miss the public showing at the Emirates Palace of an original painting of HH Sh. Zayed by Roland Van Merbeck. The work will be on display until December 4, 2009.

Happy National Day every one!
