Birdwatchers' Paradise - Zakher Lake

Location image of event venue


It's a Birdwatchers' paradise.. a lake in the middle of al Ain desert..

We'll assemble at the EMARAT gas station (after Outlet Mall) on Dubai/AlAin Road (E66) at 3:45am on Friday the 14th of February, and then we will start driving to our first destination at 04:30am. Please arrive at the meetup point on time, as we will not wait for you if you are late, and it may be difficult to find us if we leave without you.

If you can offer a ride, or if you need a lift, mention in the comments where you are, so you can coordinate with other members. Any type of car will be able to drive to the Lake. Need help finding us? Call the EPyC hotline: 052 9288432.

When you are finished, upload your best work here for critique; post different sorts of images, if possible, to make your work interesting to others. We strongly encourage each of you to critique other people's work by first telling us what you like about it, and then what you think could be improved. Remember, critiques are meant to help us improve our skills, so don't take any criticisms personally.
