Two Days In The Desert

The following pictures were taken during a two day expedition to Liwa, in the south-west UAE near the Empty Quarter and the border with Saudi Arabia. This is where the most challenging dunes in the UAE are found with slip faces up to 600 feet high.

With many thanks for a great weekend to everyone who came along and, in particular, to:

  • Mark Powell for expert guidance and extraordinary patience
  • Dave Pryce, despite being un-bog-downable
  • John Mitchell-Ross for inviting me along, some excellent samosas and demonstrating expert timing in when to let the vehicle owner do the driving
  • Phil 'The Inversion King' Chicot for giving me car-space and remaining cheerful throughout
