Photographer's Note

As you land in cities like Dubai and Abu Dhabi, its easy to forget that the United Arab Emirates is basically a desert. It takes just a few minutes'drive away from the cities to hit the desert. I live in Dubai and I need to keep reminding myself that it was not always the lap of luxury it currently sets itself out to be...

This is a small part of the desert in Ras Al Khaimah - the Northernmost part of the UAE, not that far away from Iran. The Hajjar mountains dominate the area and we were driving up the UAE's highest mountain Jabal Jais, when we came upon this long-dried up river bed...its like the pictures I have seen of the USA's Death Valley...just a couple of hours away from where I live! A cheap way to get to California :)
