Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Spencer Cox is often photographed out of his own pleasure, but he has great feelings when highlighting something people have not previously seen, and this is what he did recently in one of his works (watch the video above).

After his drone took off, the American photographer saw a patch of sand dunes that seemed to emerge from the dense fog covering the Liwa desert in Abu Dhabi.

And from the moment the American photographer saw this beautiful and unusual sight, he knew that he would not leave the desert without taking at least one good photo.

After experimenting with different angles and observing the light, Cox was confident of capturing something “exciting”.

Upon the arrival of the drone over the cloud line, the photographer was “jumping for joy”, as he put it, after seeing this scene, as he thought that he was watching a large-scale art exhibition, to let him live in an experience he will not forget.

In an interview with CNN in Arabic, the photographer says: “I want to inspire others to go out and explore the world, even if it means their own backyard, to see how the world can be amazing.”

“Moments like these only happen if you break out of your regular routine and your comfort zone,” he added.

How Cox made sure to prepare himself for filming?

The photographer considers that the first step is to obtain the necessary permits legally to use the drone. It is important to practice shooting continuously, knowing how to optimize the camera settings in the event of a long life.

Usually, when you get the image, you must learn to move to a different subject and observe various angles.

And Cox talks about the positive comments that flooded his pictures, prompting many people to question the fact that there is this dense fog in the desert.
