Sharjah Light Festival

If the Sharjah Light Festival isn't already one of the highlights of your photographic calendar, you're missing out! Join us at the Al Majaz Mosque, pictured below. When we are finished there, we might take shots of a few other nearby attractions (e.g. the Noor Mosque and Khalid Lagoon).

    Hi is anyone going from the Dubai Marina?

    February 9, 2013

  • Nitin

    Looking forward to seeing all of you at 8 tonight! As most of you already know, traffic to/in Sharjah can get very congested. Give yourself plenty of time to get there. There is paid parking around our destination. Please keep in mind that in Sharjah, parking is paid until 10 PM (rather than 9 PM, as in Dubai).

    Looking for a contact person? Send me a message, and I will reply with my phone number.

    • Nitin

      You're probably right. Can you change the time? (People who plan to arrive at 9, don't worry. Plenty of us will probably still be there.)

    I missed the first ever Sharjah Light Festival two years ago, but photographed it last year - see www.dbeye.ae/sharjah_light_festival_2012). There are so many locations (12 in Sharjah city alone) that I will be going almost every evening this year again, not just on Saturday 9th. I live in Remraam (near Arabian Ranches & Motor City) and will be driving up and down every evening .... and could meet up anyone en route who needs a lift.

      PR Kumar - sure, you are welcome to shoot with me .... no secrets, you only need a steady tripod and the ability to set your camera shutter speed to about 1 second (http://davidbutcherph...­]

    • Zeeshan Q.

      Hi David , do you have room for one more ? or if its possible for you then can we meet up at DSO ? and at what time you will leave ?

    Getting to Majaz park should not be a problem but how do i get to the group?...I mean do we need to contact someone once we're there?

    January 30, 2013

    • Nitin

      It's a small mosque and you'll have no trouble finding a large group of people outside holding tripods. That said, if you or anyone else wants to contact me, send me an email from my profile page, and I'll write back with my phone number. (I'd prefer not to post it online.)

    Hi, I've been wanting to attend the meet up since I joined last Oct but with my schedule and location I can't ever manage. I'm delighted to finally be able to join this time & looking forward to getting to know other members of this group.

    January 22, 2013

    • Nitin

      Planning to drive? If you scroll up, you will see a map listed alongside the location (below the date and time). Taking a cab? Ask for Al Majaz Park. Need a ride? Mention where you're coming from and see if someone can pick you up.

      January 23, 2013

  • PR K.

    Would love to attend.

    The only problem here is that according to the web site (http://www.slf.ae/en/), the Sharjah Light Festival runs from 7th to 15th February inclusive, so there won't be much to photograph on 2nd February :-(

    January 23, 2013

    • Nitin

      Not sure how I managed to miss that, but thanks for spotting it! The date has been shifted back a week.
