I visiting Dubai back in May, 2013 for a few photography jobs and some friends of mine had planned a day of off-roading and asked me to join, which I happily did. This image in particular was taken by surprise and spontaneous. We had parked for a few minutes to help another friend who was stuck in the sand, at that moment, I noticed this huge convoy of off-road cars carrying tourists, luckily I had my 5D Mark III with me and quickly snapped this shot of them driving the terrain in a wide-angle shot. I was very lucky to be standing there at that moment to capture the convoy in such a manner.
