I finally made it into the desert at the right time and with the right light to do some real Milky Way shooting - something that was on my list for a long time. Below the results!
Dunes & Milky Way
The light on the bottom left comes from the Mohammed bin Rashid Solar Park, which will be the largest solar panel installation in the world when completed.
A 15min exposure generates these kind of star trails - the diagonal bright area is the Milky Way.
Was lucky enough to find this beautiful tree in the desert past the Al Qudra lakes.
Another lucky find of a dead tree in the desert. Always wanted to try the flash light shot!
The Moon Rise
What looks like the sun rising is actually the moon coming up behind the dunes - the moon was just entering waning crescent.
