DUBAI DESERT SUNSET

Desert Dubai sunset


— Desert time —

Sunset time is always a bliss moment. Especially on an extraordinary place like the desert. We booked a desert safari via North Tours Desert Rangers.
I do have to say that if we could have done the desert tour without the tour company, I would have preferred that. First of all our driver picked up us way too late which gave us not enough time to enjoy the desert as we have paid for. I am sure it really depends on the driver you have, we just didn’t have a good experience with ours.

As for the shoot, we only had 5 minutes for the photos because he got impatient, while he was the one who was late to start with. The 5 minutes we had witnessed this sunset was magical, but also crazy, because I obviously wanted to make amazing pictures here.

In the end, not regretting going to the desert, because the desert should be part of the Dubai experience. I only hope you have more luck with the driver if you go ;)

— The Look —

I had a fabulous dress in mind to shoot at the desert. What I didn’t calculate for were the weather conditions. We had the luck to be in Dubai with the most craziest storm in years. This was the day after, quite chilly still. Luckily I take enough clothes with me on a trip to dress for a year lol.

This was my layering game. Improvising to wear the dress as a top and adding a long hoodie vest to not be overdressed. I wouldn’t have felt comfortable in a sexy dress in an arabic country other than a resort, so this was for the better :)

Besides, it’s about the sunset and not about me ;)
