Sir Bani Yas Island is a protected reserve just off the coast of Abu Dhabi, for many years it was the summer residence of His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The interior of the island have natural grasslands that are home to free-roaming wildlife, including the near extinct Arabian Oryx.
I had the honour to document the early days and development of SBY many times and every time I come back I find new places to explore. Its like a hidden secret. The grassland in the picture are really there and are an ideal feeding ground for the freely roaming animals. It totally amazed me how lush the greens are. Jul 2010.
