As a passionate photographer, I create a list of places to capture during weekends. The city of Doha — and Qatar as a country — has its own uniqueness at different times of the day. My favourite time to capture landscape pictures is half an hour before and after sunset.
However, I saw something very different recently when I visited the Doha Corniche on a Friday morning with my camera. The calmness in the surroundings and the beautiful sky really caught my attention. The serenity of a calm city brought so much peace to my soul that day.
While I drove further down towards the Fanar Islamic Museum I saw the refreshing look of this landmark building against the beautiful blue sky. The nearby Falcon Souq was another place that provides some nice architectural buildings on a cloudy day.
I use a Nikon D7100 with the 18-200mm lens which is suitable for any situation. However, I have few prime lenses which are used for specific photography projects. My favourite lens is the Nikon 85mm f1.8, which gives me very sharp pictures almost always.
