Filmed and Directed by: Lewis de Mesa

“This is a compilation of my time lapse work from the summer (April-August) of 2012-2013. A tough time to shoot outdoors in the UAE as the weather is mostly hazy, some occasional sandstorm, temperatures can reach up to 50° C during the day time with a dreadful humidity of 80-90% range. So best time to shoot (without collapsing) is sunset and at night.
In the Milky way part, I travelled more than 200 miles to Abu Dhabi and another 100 miles to the highest peak in the UAE at Ras Al Khaimah. The rest is is shot in Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain and Fujairah.”
