Madinat by danyeidphotography

One of Dubai’s most attractive destinations, Madinat Jumeirah is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional Arab village, complete with a souq, palm-fringed waterways and desert-colored hotels and villas festooned with wind towers. It’s especially enchanting at night when the gardens and grounds are romantically lit and the Burj Al Arab gleams in the background.

Old City of Sana’a by danyeidphotography

Situated in a mountain valley at an altitude of 2,200 m, Sana’a has been inhabited for more than 2,500 years. In the 7th and 8th centuries the city became a major centre for the propagation of Islam. This religious and political heritage can be seen in the 103 mosques, 14 hammams and over 6,000 houses, all built before the 11th century. Sana’a’s many-storeyed tower-houses built of rammed earth (pisé) add to the beauty of the site.

High & Low tide by danyeidphotography

During my stay in Sur, I noticed this boat standing close to the shore for almost 2 days non moving. The bay is fully covered by the seawater so I waited till the morning to have a low tide to access the location due that my mission is to shoot with Zeiss Otus 55mm & not a wide zoom lens, so I have to be get closer within the distance range. I end up diving in the mud but I’m glad with the final result.
The point here is to prove that the Otus 55 is not only a prime lens for portraits but you can still use it for landscape & benefits from the lens quality.
