made for the book: One Minute on Earth 2013
Shot at Abu Dhabi the capital of United Arab Emirates......
The administrative and Oil powerhouse has grown leaps and bounds in the last couple of years into a very cosmopolitan city..... The city is dotted with Tall skyscrapers and the beachside drive which is referred to Corniche...... The streets are lined up with Date palm and flowers......

All excited and looking forward to the Dday, had been preparing for the moment by charging the better, check the camera clock and hoping the weather was good enough on D Day.......

With Saturdays being working for us, the only choice left was to take a little break of an hour and half before the shoot to go to the intended location..... The intent left as such... A big lesson also was learnt in the process.... "Not to miss out on the Basic details and to always read carefully"........

UAE is +4Hours of GMT+0 13:00 Hours then was 17:00 here...... Thats where all the fun began....Having checked the shoot-time and referring website last week all thru the while I had prepared myself to leave office at 16:00 UAE time to reach the location by 16:30 and give myself half an hour to set up and shoot the intended sweeping view of the city from the Beachside like this old Image (

It isn't a comfortable feeling at all when 10 minutes before the shoot I decide to check this page and Realise my bigtime folly watching to my horror the countdown timer shown on the screen showing 10 minutes left at 15:50 Hours!!..... I had ignored to read carefully the Checklist Francisco Marty and Julian John had posted..... The GMT+0 had gone into Summertime..... My supposed shoottime to my utter dejection and disappointment had changed from 17:00 Hours to 16:00 now....... Left with so little time to reach the location of choice rushed to the roof of my office building to get some shots ......
