Al Ain had experienced some sandstorms these past few days. Often times the sun was playing hide and seek while the harsh wind kicked up the sand which resulted to decreased visibility. There were times that I needed to wear my sunglasses even at night to protect my eyes.
Here are some of the photos taken at the top of Jebel Hafeet and Mercure Grand Hotel (in the garden adjacent to the swimming pool).
In February 2010, I have posted a photo of the palace at the top of Jebel Hafeet taken with 18-55mm lens, photo shown below was taken with 18-200mm zoom lens. Unfortunately, the sky was gray and gloomy, I couldn't appreciate the difference but just the same, I want to share it with you guys.
To brighten up my day, I've decided to include this photo. Taken yesterday just before the sunset at Abu Dhabi Road.
