Abu Dhabi, UAE – Stuck in Customs

Abu Dhabi, UAE

I arrived at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque just before the sun was setting and it was absolutely majestic. To get these kind of shots, I need to use a tripod, and I often get in trouble for using my tripod, so I was a bit worried they were going to kick me out. I set it up really quickly and in a sneaky way (I find myself being sneaky in religious places far too often!), and then one of the security guards came over. I was thinking… uh oh. But I was wrong, and he was the nicest guy in the world. He even asked me some nerdy tech stuff about my camera, and he said I was free to roam for the rest of the day.
