Taken from Jazirat Al Hamra in Ras Al Khaima, UAE. This is an abandoned village, also referred to as “ghost town”.
Ras al-Khaimah (ras al-Khaymah, literally “The Top of the Tent”) is one of the emirates of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), in the southwest of the Persian Gulf. It is in the northern part of the UAE bordering Oman. The emirate has a population of about 300,000 inhabitants. It covers an area of 656 square miles (1700 km²), mostly desert. The emirate is ruled by Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammad al-Qassimi.
Around 45 to an hour drive from Dubai. RAK (short name for Ras Al Khaimah) offers nice beach resorts and some scenes that you just can’t find in Dubai.
Here’s how I took it:
Settings: f8 | 3 bracketed shots 2EV +/-
Gear: Canon 7D + Sigma 10-20mm
- Aligned and tone mapped from Photomatix
- Cleaned and added texture in Photoshop CS4
Have a nice day ahead!
