In the Mountains | Abu Dhabi Kids Photographer

When I moved to the U.A.E. I was struck by what a beautiful and geographically diverse country it is.  A few months ago I showed off how amazingly stunning the U.A.E. desert is in a shoot (which you can see here!)

As a girl who grew up surrounded by mountains, the first time I saw the Hajaar Mountains I actually burst into tears (in my defence I had literally had a baby about 2 weeks before!!!) – they are so rugged, and so different from the cities and desert that are much closer to Abu Dhabi.

They’re the backbone of the country and run all the way through the Arabian Peninsular from Mussandam (Oman) into the U.A.E. then back into Oman again and down to Yemen. We crossed through them several times on our road trip town to Salalah and the Yemeni border a few years ago. 

They’re a little glimpse of the U.A.E. in times past, before the glitz and glamour of the cities… they’re peaceful and wild all at the same time and I love getting away to them..

A few weeks ago we headed up to Hatta for the half term weekend, which is where I took these pics of the girls in their adorable courtneycourtney dresses – it was warm up there, but not as warm as in AD so we headed out late afternoon to explore the wadis just before a very hazy sunset….

Oh, I love getting away from the city – I love that we have such diversity of places to visit – but most of all, I just love mountains…. I’ll be back again soon, Kirsty x
