    FYI, I have a couple of ideas to present in terms of developing photographic vision in a progressive, systematic fashion. This based on my upcoming course with the PSA. The growth is step by step and very specific, and will enhance my photography for sure. They're good challenges

    Ghemar, thanks again for being our guide. Couldn't do this without you, and you took some amazing pics. You guys must have had a great time, and by all accounts well organised.. I guess things are better when I'm not there :-D Hopefully I'll bring back a few winning shots.

    Hi there looking forward for tomorrow, but little bit confused as well because I never drive to Al Ain alone and also this is the first time I am going for shooting out of Dubai

    October 14, 2011

  • Hana

    Hi guys. Is anyone planning to stay overnight or is everyone meeting in the morning?

    October 14, 2011

  • Amr

    Hi All... be ready for tonight and sleep early or get some extra sleep after noon since we will be driving all the night and tomorrow we have a lot of places to shoot before drving back!!

    October 14, 2011

  • Amreen K.

    I will Hana :)

    October 13, 2011

  • Hana

    Amreen....just make sure you are at Wafi on time!

    October 13, 2011

  • Amreen K.

    Oh my! Down, up, middle... I jus hope I reach jebel hafeet for starters.

    October 13, 2011

  • Hana

    After brainstorm we agreed we stop around the middle thats our meet up location if anybody wishes to go higher they can...however after 1 hour we are regrouping at the same point and continue to location 2 from there.

    I know the middle might be a vague location but if you get lost and you are at the foot of the jabel hafeet going up you should spot us half way the mountain?!

    @ Sarah it would mean you would need to drive down the mountain

    October 13, 2011

  • Hana

    @ghemar...what would be the loveliest view?
    I am down for anything we should limit the travel time as much as possible.

    October 13, 2011

  • Hana

    is the hotel on top of the mountain?

    October 13, 2011

  • Hana

    Sarah dear somewhere between 5.15 - 5.30.
    Ghemar ...Amr mentioned getting to the topmight require some extra time. If we leave Dubai 3.45 would[masked] be a feasible time?

    Remember to look at which newspapers accept "Pic of the Day" submissions and start submitting ;)

    You can see the sunrise and sunset times here + Golden Hour
    I would suggest you head directly for Jebel Hafeet and meet along the mountain road or on top.

    @Haden I haven't tried it before but I have created it as a test so please fill your details in it for now and I will copy the answers in the original spread sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dGZvODl0Z3V6SXd0R3J4clBYYS1Cb1E6MQ

    October 12, 2011

  • Haden P.

    @Amr , there is an option to create a form in google docs , and it automatically populates an excel sheet , I think that would be a better way to collect information :)

    I'm having a hard time filling the excel sheet from my phone :)

    October 12, 2011

  • Amr

    Hana... the same sheet will display all the details once everybody fill in his row. after that we can decide about the car pooling

    October 12, 2011

  • Hana

    Guys when all logistics are confirmed we can send out an email to everybody who RSVP-ed YES to the event with all the details!

    October 12, 2011

  • Hana

    Ghemar can i call now?
