Nature with Canon 7D

For those who have read my Canon EOS 7D review (found here), I haven’t tried the Canon 7D on nature shots yet, so last Saturday I did. Me and my friends Jason and Nino went to Fujairah, its around 2 hrs drive from Dubai.  I came there to test 2 things, first, my new 7D and second the Fader ND filter.  I’ll talk about Fader ND on my future blog post, I had some issues with it. I got splashed […]

Fujairah – Sunrise

Another shot from Fujairah. This was taken from Miramar Beach Resort.  Woke up at 5am to have a glimpse of sunrise.  My lens fogged up heavily… mainly because of the temperature and humidity.

Hatta – Dam

Hatta is a gateway… it really is. Hatta is around an hour to an hour and a half of travel from Dubai.  It is a known place for people who wants to have off road adventures. Wiki says: Hatta is a town (which includes a reconstructed heritage village by the same name) in the Hatta mountains in the north of the emirate of Dubai, UAE. Hatta is about 115 km (71 mi) east of Dubai City. Because of its altitude, Hatta has […]

Jebel Hafeet

When I first started photography around February of this year, I captured anything around me.  I try to shoot whenever I travel to places here in the UAE.  Traveling being the first and shooting as the second.  However, it came to a point when I was running of out subjects, then it occurred to me that I have to take my photography to the next level, I decided to travel for the sole purpose of shooting.  And to get some […]
