The Oasis & The Aspire

by | Nov 13, 2011 | 12 comments

The Al Ain Oasis… it is known for its underground irrigation system “falaj” which brings water from boreholes to water farms and palm trees; is an ancient system dating back thousands of years! This place is so cool to walk around and is a must visit place in Al Ain, UAE.The day was beautiful. I took this from a very low angle, so that I could bring out the beauty of the sky to the frame.

This one is dedicated for the last week’s Sunday stills – In the Dark. This tower is known as the Aspire Tower, served as the focal point for the 15th Asian Games hosted by Qatar in December 2006.

    The oasis is a wonder considering the arid desert lands surrounding it! Has a lively look!
    And the tower is one unique and the light reflections have made great pleasing effect to the overall picture! Nice HDR work and…. Qatar seems to be awesome!
