View at the top of the Jabal Hafeet mountain near Al Ain in the UAE

At the Top of the Jebel Hafeet Mountain, Al Ain, UAE by Night

The night view from the observation deck at the Jebel Hafeet mountain near Al-Ain in Eastern UAE on the border with Oman. The place is one of the favorite getaways for people from all over the southern Gulf region. Sadly, the top of the mountain is nothing but a large parking area filled with cars all the time. The surroundings and everything else looks yellow because the entire area is lit by yellow sodium vapor lamps. It would be awesome if these were to be replaced by daylight fluorescent lamps, as it would bring out the various colors of the rocks ranging from white to sand to yellow to orange to red. This is a long exposure photo, light trains of cars can also be seen.
