You will not have been able to escape noticing that I've been in Dubai - so the subject of this post should be no surprise to you.
On all but one evening - and you guessed it, the "one evening" was when I was driving back to the airport! - the skies were never really clear at the end of the day. A kind of dusty pall hung over the city - a combination of dust from the desert and other, less natural, products.
As a result the skies seemed a little flat, although often orange in colour!
I tried a few shots, but it was not really working - I blame my lack of creativity on the heat! So it broke the runs and shot into the sun. Dozens of different exposures, trying to get a good balance. These are the two I like the most.
You can find more skies from around the world at SkyWatch Friday.

Enjoy the skies.
