Hatta is a sheikhdom in the Hajjar mountains of the United Arab Emirates. It’s about 115 kilometers (71 miles) east of the city of Dubai and is a popular vacation place for Dubai residents. Justin Ng of Singapore visited there in May, 2014, when he captured two photos – a day image and a night image – to create this interesting composite. He wrote:

The image is a result of blending a day image and a night image together to present the beauty of Hatta Dam during the day and night in a single photograph.
