Arabian Desert

Something you have to do if you spend a few day in Dubai is to go for a desert excursion. Most of the excursions follow the same pattern. A 4×4 collects you from your hotel, you drive around and explore the desert for a bit. Then you have dinner at an outdoor restaurant where you enjoy (somewhat) traditional food and dancing, and have the option of a camel ride.

While the trip is a little touristy, the Arabian Desert is really beautiful, and it’s cooler than the city! The desert sunsets are magnificent, with beautiful golden colours as the sun touches the sand, and the heat of the day drops into a cooler evening.

Cutty Sark

From my archives, a picture of the Cutty Sark, shot around 1997 on 35mm film, scanned and final editing in 2012 in Photoshop.

In her day, she was the fastest tea-clipper in the world, and in 2007 after a massive fire she was almost no more. I love the lines of the ship, and the amazingly complex rigging.
