Abu Dhabi -The Vision-

T.E.S.T. Srls

Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the oil rich country known as the United Arab Emirates. Sitting off the mainland on an island in the Persian Gulf, the modern skyline and white-marble domes of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque make the city look like Dorthy’s mythical Oz. This incredible piece by T.E.S.T. Srls features the city, doing an excellent job showcasing its culture. We particularly enjoyed the shot at 20 seconds, where the protagonist stands in the white desert sands, staring ahead into the mirage-like city.

Rub Al Khali, the Empty Quarter

Rub' al Khali or Liwa Desert (also known as the Empty Quarter) is the largest contiguous sand desert in the world.  Part of the Arabian Desert, it covers much of the Arabian Peninsula, including most of the United Arab Emirates.  The UAE portion of the desert became much more well known following its appearance as the dusty world of Jakku in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), the first of the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy.  In this video, you'll get an epic bird's eye view of Planet Jakku, courtesy of content creator and drone pilot Verano47.

Horizons

Ghadir Shaar

There is a reason every drone pilot is willing to wake up in the early hours or stay out in the cold for just the last few minutes of sunlight. It is Golden Hour, aptly named because of the beautiful, golden hue the setting or rising sun casts on everything around it. In this video by Ghadir Shaar, you'll see a series of epic golden hour shots showing the intense natural beauty of the United Arab Emirates.  His previous video, "In Search of Elysium", was a finalist for the second annual Drone Video Awards.

Natural Landscape of the UAE

Moadh_Bukhash

When people think of the Middle Eastern nation known as the United Arab Emirates, they tend to think of its two great cities: Dubai and Abu Dhabi.  What's forgotten is that the UAE is actually a good-sized country in terms of land area: it covers almost 84k square km, or a bit over 32k square miles.  Only a small portion of that land is urban.  In this drone video by top contributor Moadh_Bukhash, you'll get a bird's eye view of a very different UAE, a stunningly beautiful landscape far from the towering skyscrapers.

Golden Sands

The deserts in the non-urbanized parts of the United Arab Emirates are stunningly beautiful. The endless miles of sand, sun, and dunes make it quite the destination for aerial cinematographers. The "golden, silky sand dunes," as top aerial cinematographer Moadh_Bukhash puts it, are also perfect for off-roading. Take in the aerial views of these off-roaders tearing it up in the Empty Quarter, the world's largest contiguous stretch of desert.  The Empty Quarter covers roughly the southern third of the Arabian Peninsula.

Like it's towering skyscrapers, Dubai's Love Lake represents another instance of this Middle Eastern emirate pushing the limits of humanity's ability to shape its environment.  It's a set of two heart-shaped interconnected lakes in the middle of the Empty Quarter, the world's largest contiguous Desert.  Opened in 2018, the giant lakes are visible from outer space.  An instant tourist attraction, you can check it out from a much lower altitude in this drone video by contributor and pilot Saw Johnnie.

One of the fascinating things about the United Arab Emirates is the way that the very old and traditional scenes of its hinterlands contrasts with the modernity of it cities.  In this drone video by PaulVlad, you'll get an aerial view of a very traditional scene - a group of camels crossing the UAE desert.  Not so far geographically from the skyscrapers of Dubai, it would be almost impossible to distinguish this scene from one which could have been filmed (albeit not from a drone) two hundred years ago.

Have you tried out the ActiveTrack flight mode setting on your DJI Mavic 2 Pro yet? Obnasr4k and his crew did on a recent mountain biking trip through a stretch of the Arabian Desert in the United Arab Emirates and we think it worked out pretty well! Hatta is an exclave of Dubai, the most well-known member of the confederation known as the United Arab Emirates. Located high in the Al Hajar Mountains, it is a popular getaway spot for residents of Dubai (and also Abu Dhabi, the UAE's second city) to travel to in the summer to escape the heat.

A Foggy Morning in Dubai

Moadh_Bukhash

It is hard to appreciate just how tall Dubai's skyscrapers are without some reference point.  One such reference is the clouds which occasionally show up in the form of fog rolling in to the city.  Top content creator and pilot Moadh Bukhash used a drone to show the city immersed in a thick blanket of fog.  The aerial views of the skyscrapers towering above these clouds gives you a sense of the height to which these giants reach; the tallest (Burj Khalif) has been the world's tallest skyscraper since 2010.
