Read on if you'd like to know something about the photos.
1. One of the two Hili Towers- I snapped that photo at Al Hili District when I was covering the Hili Archeological Park series. According to Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage, "the towers are one of the features of the local military traditional architecture in the City of Al Ain. They used to be built in the high ground to allow better observation and defense for the village of Hili and its oasis."
(I will post the square tower sometime this month.)
2. Breaking Dawn: I snapped that photo at Al Mutaredh District, along 7th street, a block away from Hazaa Mosque while I was waiting for the sunrise.
3.Mini Eiffel Tower at Al Ain Paradise where in you can find the largest display of hanging baskets in the world.
