A clean pollution free evening with traces of clouds was enough to convince my mind to venture out with my mighty Nikon D810 to capture some beautiful and awe inspiring frames of this incredible architecture. The elegant modern Arab architecture, the setting (against a backdrop of mountains), the decor all exude peace and harmony. The environment was so pleasing to the eyes that only a couple of exposures lead me to my favorite shot for the evening.
