Queen of the Desert photography by bryan gregson

Dubai is sandwiched between the Arabian Desert to the east and the Arabian Gulf to the west, and its skyline is dominated by the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. We think the best view of the city is an eastward glance, taken from the casting deck of a boat or a paddleboard while presenting flies to queenfish or many other species in the emerald waters of the gulf.
Dubai straddles a line between contemporary and traditional. The skyline rises above the dessert with breathtaking modernity (take the Burj al Arab, for example), and camel rides are a tourist attraction. But out here on the boat, when you battle a queenfish’s power and acrobatic leaps, then admire its many hues and lines that match any in the skyline, you’ll know the timeless feeling of catching a great fish.

Bryan Gregson chased queenfish in the Arabian Gulf off the coast of Dubai, which is the largest city in the United Arab Emirates. He fished with Capt. Nick Bowles of Ocean Active (oceanactive.com). More of Bryan’s work can be seen at bryangregsonphotography.com.
