Jebel Jais Peak- Weekly theme #18

by Shahul Khalid December. 07, 2016 1647 views

Jebel Jais is the highest peak in UAE located in the emirate of Ras-Al-Khaimah. We love this place so much that we go there at least once in a month once the weather is good. The winding roads which goes up the mountain are beautiful as well. One of the highlights of this place is there is not any street light which will show you the way up or down in this road, so this is an ideal place to watch the stars with minimal city light pollution. Snaps with Nikon D7000 + 18-105mm kit lens

We have reached the top late in the evening when the sun was almost down and the mountains were covered in fog. This guy was standing over there and was taking some selfies with beautiful background behind him

The view from the top is amazing with the winding roads below

The magic carpet ride

Families visit this place just to enjoy the evening and have a snack or tea and escape from the busy routine life in city.

Moon lit night

Moon light over the mountain and the light trails from cars of the visitors going back to their day to day life in cities make this place more beautiful in the night.

The beauty of these mountains really do make up for the lack of greenery. Hopefully I will get to visit this place in the near future.
Thanks for sharing these beautiful images :)

Thanks Antonio. This is an 18mm, 572sec, ISO-400, single long exposure shot. The landscape is lit up by moon. I have also some light flares from the cars passing by. Minimal processing with Nikon ViewNX 2.
