To see the world in a grain of sand
It has been years since I last explored the deserts of Dubai, and a revisit was a humbling experience of what infinity means.

Reflections of a convoy
While waiting for my first dune bash to start. It was organised by one of the tour operators in Dubai, with a convoy of about 14 4x4s.
A nice part of the sunset is the afterglow once the event is over. Richard and Markus on the sand dunes, after a full day of dune bashing in Dubai.
Taken near the deserts of Hatta, near Dubai, the red sand was absolutely stunning.

Sunrise over the Desert
Whether it's the deserts of Dubai, Syria, Jordan or Egypt, sunrise in the desert is a surreal experience. The stillness, the silence, the sun breaking through the sand all make up to something unforgettable.
Infinity in the palm of your hand ...
The amazingly fine sand of the desert, which is impossible to hold in your hand. This was taken in one of the deserts close to Dubai, as the sun was rising.
Balloon over jebels

No gallery of the desert would be complete without capturing the undulating sand. Behold the beauty of the desert.
