Emirates Winter by Lewis de Mesa

The United Arab Emirates will turn 40 in two weeks and there are big celebrations and activities across the country leading to 2nd December. To be part of the celebrations, I will post stories related to the UAE past, present and future over the next two weeks.

I will start with a video I found a few days ago called Emirates Winter by Lewis de Mesa. It's a time lapse video shot across the country between January and May of this year.

A project that started in January 2011 and completed May 2011. My goal was simply to look for interesting and unique sceneries around the United Arab Emirates, and capture its beauty by using the technique of MoCo (Motion Control) Time-lapse photography. Winter season plays a big part of my journey, as it's the best time to chase visible fluffy clouds with a true blue sky that only exist to the human eye at this time of the year.

I have traveled approximately 4000kms going around in and out the cities of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah.  Lewis de Mesa

Personally, this video makes me want to go on a road trip. Lewis de Mesa has included all the co-ordinates on his website, so check it out if you want to visit any the spots you see here.
