Behind the photo: Dubai, U.A.E.

I love visiting Dubai. It is such an amazing mixture of futuristic architecture and desert landscapes. On one of our last trips I wanted to do a photo of the skyline, but wanted something more special and different. I could have gone for a night photo, but then decided to get something different. The sun was setting behind the high buildings and I was preparing to take the shot you see below, when I saw a huge number of birds flying in the distance.

I got really exited and decided to wait and see if they will get in the frame. I few second later I managed to get the photo I wanted. There is barely any editing done on the photo, what you see is what came out of the camera.
