The Abu Dhabi City located in UAE is a great city and place to stay both for vacation and live. It consist of unique architecture. It is almost perfect except for the weather condition. UAE is the Middle East it is quite challenging to stay in the city during the summer.
And when winter comes, will start to be covered with a thick fog all around the city. It feels city will start to fade away in preparation of a change of weather. The city seems so quiet and isolated from any human forms. The unique buildings and architecture are being hidden behind fogs.
I had the opportunity to document fog season where I will have to wake up very early or skip my morning work not to miss the incredible nature and embrace the cold weather it gives.
