Sir Bani Yas island in Abu Dhabi's Western Region.
Sir Bani Yas (Arabic: صير بنى ياس) is a natural island located 250 km (160 mi) southwest of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. It lies 9 km (5.6 mi) offshore from Jebel Dhanna, which serves as a crossing point to other islands such as Dalma. Sir Bani Yas is 17.5 km (10.9 mi) from north to south and 9 km (5.6 mi) from east to west making it the largest natural island in the United Arab Emirates.
Located just off the shore of the Western region of Abu Dhabi, Sir Bani Yas island was originally home to Arabia's largest wildlife reserve. Spanning over 87 km2 (34 sq mi), the reserve was established in 1971 by the late ruler and founder of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Thanks to decades of intensive conservation work and ecological investment, it is now home to thousands of large free-roaming animals and several million trees and plants. A bird sanctuary as well as a wildlife reserve, Sir Bani Yas showcases nature through activities such as adventure safaris, kayaking, mountain biking, archery, hiking and snorkeling.

Photographed with Canon 5D Mk2 and Canon TS-E 17mm lens.

The Kozjak brook, feeding the Soča river from the east (on the left), springs high beneath Mt. Krnčica (2142 m), and runs through many pools making six waterfalls. One of Slovenia’s most picturesque waterfalls, the Veliki Kozjak, was created in the outlet of the lower Korita of the Kozjak Brook.

Approximately 250 meters lower, the water falls again. Here, the waterfall carved  an underground hall. Its bottom is covered by a vast blue and green pool, and its walls are reminiscent of those in the Karst caves. A 15 meter high white water column offers its visitors an unforgettable scenery.

I took this photograph from the center of the brook, standing bare feet in the middle of the ice water. Invigorating experience.
I used Canon 5D Mk2 and bracketed 7 exposures to capture all shades of this amazing scenery. Final image was made with manual blending of all 7 exposures.

Night aerial photographs of Abu Dhabi, capital of UAE reveal not only its intense brightness but an incredible array of colours that transform this beautiful city into an urban rainbow.
I captured this scene from the roof top of the WTC Abu Dhabi, tallest structure in the Emirate. I used Canon 5d mk2 and Nikon 14-24mm lens.

This post isn't related to photography, however, I BEG of you to watch it and share it, as much as you possibly can. This post may actually save someone's life for real.

"From One Second to the Next," the rather unlikely film below, came together when AT&T approached the legendary German filmmaker Werner Herzog and asked if he would direct a series of short films warning people about the dangers of texting while driving. "What AT&T proposed immediately clicked and connected inside...

Thank You for passing on the post! A young driver was talking on his phone when he pushed two cars into mine,  waiting on a red traffic light with me! Seeing people out there putting their lives and others at an extra risk while texting makes me feel  pretty sad. Don't do it! Concentrate! Even without texting, car accidents happen so easily. Don't put  an extra risk to it.

Snapping pictures for a better, happier world.
Introduction
The human sight wanders; it floats between the parallel planes of visual stimuli, the perception of senses and stored memories. Our vision is an infinitely complex process. It induces feelings, evokes memories, combining them into associations and reactions. It can fool us too, for sometimes, it blinds us with emotions.
For me, photography is about capturing an ephemeral slice of time which I unwittingly inhabit among the stars and in between many points of Nothing.
My body of work is a combination of sparks of momentary inspiration, with an amalgamation of science, an unhinged creativity and the poetry of mathematics; when shapes align, I become a hyper-aware observer of that moment which lasts no longer than a snowflake on the palm of a hand.
Like Alice in Wonderland, I explore strange volumes, separated and intertwined by shadows and light and these, in turn, trigger my impulse. They make me remember my favourite books, films, personal losses and little victories, my wishes, my quiet dreams and my darkest fears.
Like a bloodhound, I relentlessly trace the footprints of textures, the reflections and distortions, the faint movements and stillness, the mathematic puzzles and buried, hidden secrets.
My art is my hunt. My hunt is my art. It’s an inexplicable hunger that emanates from deep within.
It's hard to define the central core of my photographic interest but it is no harder than finding beauty in the mundane. My work is propelled by this quest. Whether I'm photographing a glittering skyscraper or a decaying and abandoned house, a quiet forest in the morning or a thunderous waterfall, I strive to hear the inaudible echoes that lie muted beyond the spectrum of frozen light. It's a never ending pursuit for general aesthetics amidst chaos. It's an exploration for narrative within the noise. I seek visuals that evoke dialogue and spark the curiosity. My collection is infused with joy of life, a great dose of optimism and hope for our world.
I enjoy treating light as a tangible object with a painterly, hyper-stylized and dramatized quality. My subjects are arranged with an architectonic order which respect the scale and proportions, yet always sparkling with a sense of ecstatic grandeur.
My visuals choose me; I only acknowledge them with my observation. I try to understand with compassion and gratitude. Beauty of light can never be truly understood. As such, it deserves quiet admiration and respect.
