Nostalgic UAE 2002/2003 – Fossil Rock

During my time staying in Dubai, a frequent weekend activity was to take our 4×4 cars into the desert. One popular location to visit was Fossil Rock outside Dubai and Sharjah which had a unique and distinctive rock formation.

Fossil Rock is located in the desert near Mleiha, an hour’s drive from Sharjah city. This large natural rock formation is jam-packed with marine fossils.

Most of the images here were made with my original Canon D30 digital camera (the very first digital SLR from Canon) sporting a 3.1 MPixel sensor! It’s still satisfying to be able to reprocess these images with the latest software and get some pretty decent results.

The following images were taken in 2003 with my Canon EOS 10D camera with an improved 6.3 Mpixel sensor.
