The UAE desert is a hot, dry and overwhelming place for some. For me, it stood as a magical moving destination where it not only gave me a new outlook on life, but can be counted as one of the most inspiring places I’ve ever been to in my life.
It took just only three and a half hours to drive from Dubai through the dry baron and sandy landscape of UAE to the outskirts near the Saudi Arabia border to finally be greeted to an oasis of sand castles, trees and water. Meet Qasr Al Sarab and the Liwa Desert.
Fast forward checking in, lunch, drinks and dinner, we finally woke the next day (jet lagged) when daylight just broke above the sand dunes. So my husband and I sprinted out of bed and up to the sand dunes to capture the sereneness of the land which is what you see below. Please note that these images in no way represent what we saw. Through our own eyes, it was so much more vast, colourful, grand and enchanting…something that you would need to experience for yourself.
I hope these pictures can atlas give you an insight and emotion into what I felt that day we shot these images.
