MB’s below shot is a close-up of part of the skyline of Doha’s Corniche (seafront). The view towards the sea at night throws up the outlines and lights of Arabic dhow boats taking tourists out for a short spin on the Arabian sea, which is somewhat flat and a tad boring. But if one turns one’s head, then one catches the below far more exciting – some would say – view.
The 5km corniche circumference is fully pedestrianised and is a haven for joggers and families out for a walk, at weekends in particular once the sun goes down. MB regularly walks and runs its length. FYI – The yellow building is known locally, colloquially, as ‘The Condom’!
Interesting account, Mike, fabulous lights scene. TH.
It is a good night shooting. Congrats Mr.! I think we used to work hard to make night shootings with SLR technology in the past. Now It is possible to get very successful results with DSLR cameras.
Thanks L. Not DSLR actually. A new-to-market Sony compact camera – RX100 vi. An amazing camera. Night shots especially are brilliant. Hope all good.
Thanks everything is well for me. I hope for you ? And yes i looked into the camera you mentioned. Yes it looks tiny skilled semi-professional digital camera. But i always prefer Nikon. It is the best for me… (my first camera was Leica and then i always used Nikon.)
Well i want to ask youdid you ever use the exposure meter? So did you enjoy taking pictures like this?
What a stunning skyline that is! I imagine it must be quite a sight indeed from out at sea — even with the giant yellow condom. 🙂
