Desert Safari - Dubai

by Shahul Khalid December. 07, 2016 956 views

During the beginning of this year, our employer decided to have a family day out. So most of us voted for Desert safari. Deserts in UAE have really wonderful landscapes. Since I was not having my family in town, I decided to take my camera as my family. Here are a few snaps from the trip. Shot with Nikon D7000 + 18-105mm kit lens, minimal processing in Nikon ViewNx 2 software.

This desert was having big limestone hills in the horizon and rolling sand dunes. Our 4 wheel drive glided through these sand dunes like a roller coaster ride

The rolling sand dunes and the colorful landscape make the safari and wonderful roller coaster ride

Driving the desert cart through the sand dunes gives you a rush of adrenaline

You can have a rush of adrenaline driving these beasts, along with many other adventures the safari can offer

After the belly dancer left the stage, the fire dancer arrived and started creating stories with swirls of fire. Reminded me of old Japanese Kung-fu video games
