New on 500px : Still Praying by Sakhr by Sakhr

The Gharameel Desert – which located in Al-Ula, Saudi Arabia – has wonderful rocks formations, it also called Gharameel Al-Rowalla. It is a unique land that make you feel you moved to another planet. May think you are among ruins of an empty city !

In general view it looks very sad and scary specially in night but it is very attractive and beautiful. I like to see stars through its huge rocks. Here I saw this formation and I imagined it like a huge old people stand respectively to pray for who created all this beauty (Subhan Allah).

Technically I took multi exposure for the land with multiple focus point with f/11 and ISO 50 after the sunset, Then I capture the Milky Way when it rose with f/2.8 and ISO 5000

I hope you all love it 😉

New on 500px : Almahajja Mount by Sakhr by Sakhr

Almahajja Mount, which has amazing and peculiar morphologies, is located in the northwestern sedimentary basin in KSA, near the road link between Hail and Taima.

It is surrounded by small pastures and water basin which were the target of many tribes whose livelihoods depended in raising livestock; these tribes lived in the vicinity of the mount, engraved their cultural imprints in the portrayed their daily life and the activities of trade caravans traveling between Iraq, the Hijaz, Syria and Najd.

Almahajja Mount consists of sandstone from the age of ancient life (Paleozoic) or the first geological time (Cambrian, Silurian and Ordovician). Its fragile structure allowed long-term weathering of especially the fourth era (Pleistocene and Holocene) to carve and erode it, thus giving it its present form. Wind had a strong effect in periods of drought in the region. The state of adjacent terrain indicates that weathering had a strong effect, turning it into rubble and dilapidated forms of great beauty and magnificence.

The text is abstract of long study done by Dr. Fadl Ayoubi and Dr. Abdullah Al-Misnid.

Technically I’ve captured multi exposure for this beautiful mountain under the moonlight and I hope you all like it 🙂
