One of the last outdoor trips we took was to the Hatta pools area. This is a mountainous area about 1hr30 from Dubai, where one finds multiple natural water pools. Unfortunately the more popular pools are often full of garbage. Common for the region, "some" people tend to think that they can just leave garbage behind and nature will take care of it... You should all be ashamed!
Off the beaten track, we did however also spend time at relatively clean places. Deeply hidden into the mountains, we were surprised to find this beautiful lonely mosque. A good start of a new photography year!

Nik Software HDR Efex Pro
Those of you following this blog, know I've been using Photomatix Pro for my HDR (High Dynamic Range) images for a long time. After I heard very good things about the new HDR Efex Pro from Nik Software, I decided to give it a go and was pleasantly surprised. Time will tell, if it will replace the trusty Photomatix...
More of the Hatta images will be uploaded here.
