Getting up early in Dubai

How about another before sunrise shot from Dubai. I actually took quite a lot early morning shots during my trip there. Really did not get much sleep there :) At least you always can get a taxi quite simply, even in the middle of the night.

This shot is from the Shangri-la hotel, taken right in the middle of the morning blue hour. Edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

All from Keukenhof

since the spring started, the tulips season started with it. So today’s post will all be just photos of tulips, taken in Keukenhof. For those unfamiliar, Keukenhof is a huge park near Amsterdam, just full of tulips. And right now, until the middle of may, is the time to go and visit it.

Also, if you plan a visit to Amsterdam, you may find my Top photography spots in Amsterdam list helpful.

Tulips, tulips and even more tulips

All these photos, were taken last year, at around end of the season.

Missing updates

I just noticed that I had not updated the blog in almost three weeks. Crazy how fast time goes. Not that I had any free time in between. March is usually my busiest work month, and it was not different again this year. And I also like to make changes to my flat in the spring, as that’s when I’m inspired to do so. So when I was not editing or taking photos, I was doing that. And of course I’m tired from all that. But it’s time to get back to posting, so here goes :)

Before sunrise

I had to look over my gallery to even see if this is before sunrise or after sunset. It’s hard to say in Dubai. The city has so much light in it all the time. But if you look closely, you will notice the bridge in the middle empty. That just never happens in the evening :)

Packing again

Work season started for me, so I’m again packing and hitting the road. I will be gone for the next week and while I will be in 4 different countries, I don’t think I will have time for any landscape or cityscape shots. Work comes first. So I will not be updating here, but if I manage, there will be some updates on my Instagram account.

Under the Burj Khalifa

It’s very cool how much you can get with a 12mm lens. You can stand really close and even so get the tallest building in your photo :). Same here were I took this shot from right under the Burj Khalifa. I really liked the composition with the palm in front of the tower.

This is a two exposure blend, done in Photoshop. Some of the stars in the shot were visible, but only few, so I added more in post processing.

Another early morning in Dubai

Funny thing. I have never ever got up for the sunrise in Bratislava. In all the years I live here, I never took a single sunrise shot here. But I have many from all the cities I visited. It’s just so easy to tell oneself that one will do it later. There is always another day when you are at home. And it’s so great to be able to get up late :)

Of course this was not the case in Dubai. Had to get the most of every day I had. So getting up for sunrise was a must. So here is one sunrise shot, taken from the Shangri-la hotel in Dubai. This is a 5 espoxure panorama stitched in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.
