Got up at the crack of dawn. It has been quite sometime since I have last seen the sun rise in the desert. Actually it has been years since I have been out early in the morning at Lehbab desert in Dubai. This time I was accompanying a friend who wanted to shoot some portraits in the desert. I was there to assist and guide her through her shoot. Of course I had my camera gear too but I had been set up for my usual bird photography and thus I had my favorite Nikkor 300mm f4 D + 1.4 TC II on my trusty old Nikon D3. Didn’t want to change lens in the desert and so I had to shoot with 420mm focal length. Here’s some of my images from that morning. Enjoy!
