The Falcon and the Sandman

This is not America - No!

A falconer sends his bird wheeling into the sunset sky above the desert sands by Bab Al Shams Resort in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.


  1. Great picture love the color of the clouds, how is Bab Al Shams by the way thats one place i have not ventured into.

  2. Look at that sky! What a fabulous falcon moment :)

  3. DReb: it feels so confined as its built like a fort and is really quite small as far as a resort is concerned. We went to stay there over Christmas in 2004 for 4 days and left after 1 day as there was nothing for the kids to do!

    But it is beautiful and, photographically, there are lots of different angles and interesting things to shoot.

    Al Hadheera Desert Restaurant is a wonderful experience, but expensive.

    Sha'ira: it was a great time! My current avatar that you can see here shows another shot from that shoot.
