A Quantity Of No Importance | Photo Set - Life At Wasteland

Aperture : f/32; Exposure : 1/13sec; ISO : 100; Focal Length : 70mmadjust your monitor brightness and contrast to see all gray scale levels for better viewFinally we went on the much awaited trip to “Hatta” in Dubai. Our plan was to go there in the evening since the heat will be less at the time and also knowing that it’s going to be a 2-3 hours drive to reach the place before the sunset.

But thanks to leaving the city very late; we reached Hatta town around 6pm and the worrying news was we have to travel another 15km into the mountains to find the wadi where we planned to camp down. After a difficult drive on gravel through the mountains at pitch black night (with 2-3 times pushing the vehicle up hill) we came to an end that we felt not to risk driving any further.

All was well until I got up in the morning to witness the above scenery (I wanted to post this pic to show you all what I saw to my naked eye). My first impression was where the hell are we? And second was; what’s there to photograph in this barren landscape? (FYI it was my main idea to come on this trip anyway :)

I know you must be thinking by now; whether I managed to photograph anything other than the pebbles scattered round the ground. Isn’t it?

Well... for that stay tuned for my photo series “Life at wasteland” which will kick off from now onwards =D
