Beautiful tour and what a great camera!
In reply to ric63, May 3, 2012

4Excellent series Ric.
Thanks a lot for sharing them.

This one is just incredible, it looks like a scale model and the shot itself is great
(as most of the rest).

I've never been so happy until purchasing HX100V, what a great camera!!!

Truth is a pathless land.
The dead past darkens the ever living present.

Corrections and critics are more than very welcome, desirables.

Hi Jarola,
Thank you.

Nearly all of these are taken on the gold IA setting. A couple were on P mode, just so I could force a flash here and there.

Thanks Augusto,

This was taken out of a small slot in the viewing window area, so it was tough to get a good composition in the high wind and trying not to drop the camera 1500 feet!

Besides the Souk (market) area, the rest were taken from a moving open top bus or a rocking boat

Ric, that is a great presentation of so many different parts of that unique place. The pictures are all very well-framed and sharp. There's certainly no shortage of large, modern buildings there, including the world's tallest at 2,757 feet. It's good that you got up for an aerial view of it. One of the boats is hauling a bunch of white and one blue kind of contraption, that I can't identify, other than to think they might be some sort of vehicle.

Thanks for the feedback Steve.

The 6 heavy vehicles on the huge Dhow are Mercedes Benz Actros 2343 prime movers or what you would call tractors.
They weigh roughy 9 Tonnes each.

I did see one bigger Dhow the day before but she was gone on this day.

I have alot of images of trucks (and buses) from my trip as I am a manager in the Volvo group and I look after many new trucks imported into Australia.
So yes alot of boring truck images to come

The world takkest building also has the worlds fasted elevators, my tummy still hasnt recovered!

Yes it is an amazing place and I recomend anyone to go and check it out. The people are great and very talkative. The exchange rate is excellent so you would do VERY well over there, cameras are cheap

What an amzing series Ric. Your series protrays the stark contrast between old and new. It appears to be a place of great intrigue and mystery waist deep in big
money. Thanks for posting, keep em coming. hawk65

Just think Ric, you could have picked me up a cheap Rolex, we have a program on TV called four rooms, in those four rooms are four dealers, members of the public got to any four rooms to sell what they have and try and strike a deal. The thing is they can only go into the next room if they refuse the dealer offer, and so on.

To cut a long story short, this chap brought to the room a Gold and diamond incrusted Rolex, made for the Sultan with an unique serial number which proved made to royal family, he refused £300,000 i though what an idiot, he would never had got a better offer. he original suggested he would be interested in £50,000 what a fool.

Thanks Hawk,

You could not have summed it up any better, you are spot on.
From the richest of the rich to the poorest of the poor.
Although it was a great place to visit.

I have to admit, I don't think I would give that window cleaning job a go!

Hi Ric,
In reply to ric63, May 5, 2012

Some wonderful images, seems as though you had a good time. Certainly a variety , different from the norm that one usually sees of Dubai.

The more and more I would love to shoot the desert in its starkness, really appeals to me...shall have to try to get to one, more likely in our own country!!
Thanks for sharing, really enjoyable.

Cheers,
Jill
