Taking a break from my Antarctic series (which, by the way, you will be able to see at the upcoming Slidefest on 30th of January, organised by GPP) I wanted to do a quick post with a Dubai image from a familiar location.

I’ve been going to this same location for close to two years now and for some reason I always like going there as there’s always a new twist to the images I come back with. This time it was the clouds. Really fast moving clouds that I initially went to capture in a timelapse and ended up capturing in a long exposure image that I’m very happy with it. The clouds were looking great not just because they were fast moving, but the direction in which they were moving made them look like some sort of rays shooting out from the back of Burj Khalifa.

Initially I was shooting with an ND filter, but in the end I didn’t need it anymore as it was getting fairly dark and I managed to get a 2 minute long exposure at f22.
