Not that I really like going to the beach, but as I was staying close to it in the Dubai Marina, I went there for a moment. And it was hot as hell, so exactly like I thought. And as you can see from the photo, also not the best time for photography. So after taking few photos, I returned to doing what I do mostly during the day when traveling. Sleeping. That’s actually quite normal for me. I go out for the sunrise, then go to bed and then go out again in the evening to take more photos. Especially in such hot places as Dubai, I just don’t have the will to go out during the day.

This is a single photo, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. I used a polarizing filter when taking this photo, but it didn’t help that much.
