Wow, I bet it doesn't rain there often! :D

The two pictures are great, I can feel the atmosphere.

Enjoy. I was in Dubai for almost 3 weeks during Ramadaan. It's a lovely place.

Shantanu said...

Isn't the desert pretty? Certainly looks that way from these lovely pics...

Mridula said...

Lovely pictures, both.

Ram Dhall said...

Twenty nine comments on VOF and not a single response from you - We had started getting concerned. Good to know that you are having some good time at Dubai and Oman.

Both the pictures are beautiful.

Enjoy yourself and come back soon.

Sheru,

I had a fabulously great time!

Without you, I wouldn't have enjoyed so much. Thank you and a hug to you (and Bunnu too).:D

Arun,

That compliment coming from a photographer means much to me. Thank you.:)

The picture you like is sunset at the place where I went on a Desert Safari. I've posted a few more pictures today. Do let me know if you liked those as well.:)

indicaspecies said...

Sameera,

Thank you for the welcome. Dubai rocks.:)

Hey, I wish I had your telephone number. Do email me...for next time.;)

Priyank,

Fascinatingly vast desert! Thank you Puku.:)

indicaspecies said...

Lakshmi,

Nice play with words. I'm back now and thank you for your kind wishes.:)

indicaspecies said...

Zhu,


Thank you. I hope you like the subsequent post as well:)

Rainfall is generally light in the deserts of Middle East, I believe, with an average of about 150 mm. Oh, but there are few instances in the past when Dubai has been flooded by rainwater..

indicaspecies said...

Harekrishnaji,

Thank you.:)

Indeed a lovely place!

indicaspecies said...

Shantanu,

The wilderness of the desert is truly a pretty scene. I hope you like the other pictures that I just published.:)

indicaspecies said...

Mridula,

Thank you very much.:)

San said...

That second photo looks like an ocean of sand. And the light is beautiful.

indicaspecies said...

San,

Ocean of sand. I concur.:)

Shantanu said...

Amazing all of them! But #3 and #5 are particularly good. Haven't done deserts yets on my vacations.

indicaspecies said...

Shantanu,

You are referring to the pictures of the subsequent post. I like those pictures too, thank you for your comment.:)

Bibi said...

Hello and thank you for your visit to my blog. I've just browsed through many of your photos, and they are stunning. I was in the Sahara once, and your desert photos bring back memories.

indicaspecies said...

Bibi,

Thank you for dropping by, and your kind comments. I'm glad these photographs brought back those memories.:)

Lavanya said...

This endless stretch of dunes extending till the horizon was what I hoped to see in the Thar desert... But alas,as you know -it was the dunes, then shrubs, dunes, BSNL tower, dunes, tourist camps of white canvas,BRO road, vehicle parking area, dunes with decorated camels taking tourists for a ride, literally and otherwise :)

Btw, I've only seen landrover safaris on that side of the world - camel safaris avail too?

Btw, Picture#2 very pretty.

Susa said...

You did the dune rides eh? Thats always fun. Was this Wahiba by any chance?
