These photos of Abu Dhabi's Grand Mosque are just stunning

Put down your camera phone. This is what real photography looks like.

It’s tempting, we get it. With your giant DSLR camera, your 16MP-plus sporting smartphone and your some thousand followers on Instagram, you can’t help but think of yourself as a shutterbug extraordinaire. 

Sorry to burst your bubble but you’re not one. That’s not to say you can’t become one in the near future, but simply uploading pictures to an Instagram page you created with your name followed by photography as a suffix doesn’t make you one.

You’ve probably heard of The Station in Abu Dhabi, but for those of you who haven’t, it is a pop-up concept at The Galleria mall on Al Maryah Island. Running from March 2-19, The Station has the sole purpose of showcasing local talent from the region’s finest fashion, art, culinary and entertainment innovators.

From the exhibits on show, aspiring snappers shouldn’t miss out on Abu Dhabi-based photographer, Julian John’s exhibition. Named Reflections, the exhibit will showcase John’s breathtaking images of the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

The photographer from Cranleigh School Abu Dhabi, spent four years photographing the intricacies of the mosque with differing light, shadows and angles. But his work with reflections has been exemplary. 

With his talent obvious to see, we’d love to see him photograph the ‘Rainbow Mosque' in Shiraz. Until he does, enjoy these stunning snaps of Abu Dhabi’s famous mosque.
