Before we headed out to the desert my students and I spent some time discussing the types of shots we should aim for. It was a landscape workshop, so clearly we needed some shots of the dunes, the sky, and so on, but we also discussed a range of more specific shots we might take: footprints in the sand, tyre tracks, people, patterns in the sand, and so on.

This is my 'patterns in the sand' shot.

In other news ...

Bobbi and I head down to Abu Dhabi this morning, to deliver a few more workshops, but after that we're off to Muscat (Oman) for some serious 'people and places' shooting :)

Nice one! Yeah tyre tracks. I still have a few to process... Have a good trip to Abu Dhabi. I'm curious for the results.

An unusual shot but a lovely pattern. the sand really pops out at you, did you process with Topaz as you've done before with sand shots ?

...don't know why, but this nice capture just makes me feel peaceful.

Beautiful - I love it. I'm sure this must have been gorgeous in real life, but capturing it so that it remains magical for the rest of us, that's pretty superb. Thanks!

Great point of view of these shapes and lines that leads your sight to nowhere in particular. Breaking the rules!
