I would like to share some of the photographs that I took this morning. It was a very cold Friday morning but it was very rewarding and I’m very excited to share these photos.
A Sunrise in Abu Dhabi Recipe:
Shutter Speed: 20 sec
Focal Length: 34 mm
ISO Speed: 100
It is my first time to shoot at sunrise and I did not expect that I will get this kind of shot. This shot became an instant favorite of mine. I love how the purple-ish tone of the skies and the sea. This shot was taken at 6:42 am.
Shutter Speed: 30 sec
Focal Length: 65 mm
ISO Speed: 100
This photograph was taken from the same spot where I took the first photo, I just had to turn roughly 45 degrees to my left. I love the shapes of these buildings they look like one of the shampoo bottles I used to see in the Philippines. But, I would love this picture even more if the sky did not look so muddy added with a good set clouds.
Thank you for viewing.

I just want to share the story behind the latest addition to my Photography Gears. Last night is one of those very rare occasions that I get to go home early (I usually get off work at 7:10 to 7:20pm but because one of my bosses asked me to do some work outside the office I was able to go home at 6:30pm).
So I got home, changed my clothes then started playing on my computer. I played a few rounds of NBA 2k11 then started watching an episode of D-town TV, a Photography Video Blog hosted by Scott Kelby which will surely be helpful for entry level up to professional photographers.
So, there I was alone in my room when I noticed time it was already 8:00pm and my wife is not yet home. She is usually home at 7:00 so I started to worry. Too bad my phone was also missing. Luckily, one of my friends suddenly went online and I asked her to try to call on my wife’s mobile and tell her that It’s already late and I’m worried. My friend replied and told me that my wife is already at the hallway of the building.
So, I waited for few minutes then my wife arrived. I immediately asked her why she was late. She told me she had to accompany a colleague to visit a nearby mall after that I immediately told her to change while I prepare dinner. So I went to the kitchen and started cooking dinner. When I got back to our room my wife asked me to give her my cam which was right on top of my table that time, and to my surprise I found a Nikon MC-DC2 wrapped around my Nikon D90. With a note that says “Advance Happy Anniversary”.
Thank you to my very thoughtful and loving wife. This gift will surely be very useful when I take the photographs of the fireworks on Dec 2 for the U.A.E. National Day. A photographic opportunity to look forward to.
