Trip to Fossil Rock

On the 6th of this month I went for an off-road trip with some other local photographers. A trip to see the sunrise from the desert and to visit a mountain/hill called fossil rock. Unfortunately we could only managed to get to Fossil Rock Minor due to inexperience off road drivers though we plan to tackle the tracks to the Large fossil Rock another time.

1) A two shot Panorama of the sunrise over Maliha Mountain.......btw the two dots on the right are hot air balloons and not dirt on my sensor... Shooting Date/Time : 12/6/2008 7:01:39 AM - 7:01:41 AM
Tv(Shutter Speed) : 1/400 - 1/320
Av(Aperture Value) : 5.6
Metering Mode : Center-Weighted Average Metering
ISO Speed 100
Lens 18.0 - 200.0 mm
Focal Length 35.0 mm

2) I tried a different approach to process this pictures. Might look like an HDR but it isn't. Well not completely. I played around with the Exposure and highlights/Shadows option in PS3. Btw the white glow on the right was mist rising as the sun rose....was very cool to watch it....Shooting Date/Time : 12/6/2008 6:58:39 AM
Tv(Shutter Speed) : 1/125
Av(Aperture Value) : 6.3
Metering Mode : Center-Weighted Average Metering
ISO Speed : 100
Lens : 18.0 - 200.0 mm
Focal Length : 24.0 mm

3) 6 shot panorama of Fossil rock minor....I know it doesn't look like much but the view was great...also a bit too much sky for my liking but I wanted to frame that plane into the picture...Shooting Date/Time : 12/6/2008 7:34:46 AM - 7:34:53 AM
Tv(Shutter Speed) : 1/320
Av(Aperture Value) : 6.3
Metering Mode : Center-Weighted Average Metering
ISO Speed : 100
Lens : 18.0 - 200.0 mm
Focal Length : 18.0 mm

Note: Been kinda lazy to make any new posts...so didn't post much over here.

  1. Oh wow. I was due to go to Fossil Rock. How long is the drive?

  1. Stained says:

    half an hour of paved road, then 1 hour of off-roading to get to Fossil rock minor.....that's the way we took. But if you take the longer paved road (i.e through university road) it'll be 1 hour paved road, then 15mins off-roading....

    Get the UAE off road guide to help. Remember that a bit of experience in sand dune driving is required....

  1. Thanks Stained. Will plan a trip and take pics :o)

  1. You're a very gifted photographer, bravo. Keep up the good work!
