Finally, a new set of travel photos is there! I just returned from a one-week stay in Dubai and had my camera gear with me most of the time. It has already been my second trip to the Emirates, but there was still a lot to discover. As usual, I focused on architectural features but also did some aerial photography and other. One location I like to emphasize on this post is the Tomo Japanese Restaurant & Bar on top of the Raffles Hotel. This place not only offers excellent japanese cuisine and cocktails, but also an incredible panoramic view of the Dubai Skyline as you can see on the cover photo above. I convinced myself of this great experience to have dinner under clear blue sky at the Tatami Terrace of Tomo Restaurant. The other photos of my trip can be seen in the gallery below.
Yesterday I returned from a vacation I spent with a good friend in the south of Turkey. For someone used to moderate temperatures, I actually sufferered from the Turkish climate quite a bit. Regardless of the strains, it was my objective to visit some cultural and natural locations.
In the gallery below you can find various photos of the trip, including the Avsallar Mosque where I had the chance to climb the minaret tower thanks to a friendly construction worker, the Alanya Castle, Dim River Valley and the Sapadere Canyon.
I shot these pictures with my Canon EOS 1000D and the Canon EF-S 10-18mm ultra wide angle lens.
