Travelled to meet and work with my friend, photographer Line Moen, who is living in Abu Dhabi and working as dressage trainer for The Emirates Heritage Club.
MEET LINE MOEN

On our way to Al Ain, searching for the desert. We suddenly discovered the sandy hills and desert along the highway. Mia and I decided to explore and entered the first exit. Sometimes it is important to follow your intuition....
We could see the camel walking on the hills.....
Suddenly a little man was sitting on the hills, waving his hands and when we continued along the road, we could see a small camel farm. Where the sheppards where living in their tents. It was afternoon and the light started to be quite magic. We had to hurry in order to get all the shoots we had planned.

I really want to give a big tribute to Norwegian - The Norwegian Airline company, who has been awarded the best Low-Cost Carrier for the second year in a row. The fabulous flight-deals they offer t/r Dubai. I had the pleasure of sitting next to a Swedish couple, who was on their way to visit their daughter in Dubai. They had been driving from Sweden to Oslo, in order to fly Norwegian and enjoy The Norwegian flight tickets at such good prices ! Check out their flights if you are looking for a place to visit and enjoy summer.
Thank you Mr Kjos ! We are admiring your company !
As we operate a small & lean business, we have to be careful with our expenses.
Thank you Line, Mia and Caroline for a fantastic photo shoot and brilliant photos.
BEING RESCUED IN THE END ..
In order to have a little excitement we 'topped´ the photoshoot being rescued by these men, when our car was stuck in the sand, in the dark, in the desert ....No cars ! Suddenly a car appeared, they called for assistance and rescued us. We had the pleasure of listening to their car-stereo playing 'The Fox' - by the Norwegian group Ylvis - in the desert and serving us Seven Up !
Thank you Line - Mia - Caroline for an adventure we'll never forget !
Go Hippi Go Grace !
