Every Thursday, I will be posting a photo from double exposure photography. Today’s Photo Thursday was taken while I was living in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. I spent my last couple of days in the UAE at a 5 star desert resort in the Rub’ al Khali. Rub’ al Khali is the largest contiguous sand desert and takes up one-third of the Arabian peninsula. The sand dunes are made of a fine red sand that helps reflect the colors of the sun.
After ten long weeks of training in the United Arab Emirates, I should have been sick of the desert and the heat. I had six days of vacation and could go anywhere in the world. I selected to stay in the UAE and finish exploring the country. Originally, I had planned to spend all six days in Dubai. But after a weekend in Dubai during my training, I had done most everything on the Dubai to-do list. I started looking for something else to do in the UAE. I came across the Qasr al Sarab Desert Resort.
