On top of the world

I took these photos about three years ago when we stopped over in Abu Dhabi for a few days after having been in Paris.

We went dune bashing in the desert. The photo above shows the sheer size of the sand dunes. They are so steep, and are patterned by the wind.

The photo below shows someone trying to get to the top of a sand dune (trust me, it was hard, as it was steep and the sand is so soft your feet sink in.

Sitting on top of the sand dunes and watching the sun set in the middle of the desert was an experience I still haven’t forgotten, three years later.
