Hatta Rock Pools

June 5th, 2010

The UAE holds quite a few natural wonders for an adventurous spirit to explore. One of them is that of the rock pools in Hatta, an enclave of Dubai.

The remote Hajar mountains make for a lovely setting to enjoy a walk, a picnic and possibly even a swim in the cool waters of the pools.

Here are a few pictures of my last venture out there, early in January of this year.

I was impressed at the number of people out visiting the area despite it being a weekday. Also at the variety of nationalities. French, English, Emirati and other Arab nationals were all out enjoying the day in the sun.

More pictures soon!

Gone Pro

September 27th, 2009

So, I found out recently that a friend of mine whom I haven’t had the chance to speak to in ages has recently converted and chosen to follow the mad path that is freelance photography.

Rita has put a lot of time and effort into honing her craft – and it shows.

It’s quirky, smart, trendy and brims over with life. If you’re interested in cool portraits, great urban and location photography, and some fab shots of goods and goodies then check out her website here.
