Speaking to Doha News, Al-Mesleh said he was inspired to take the photos because colorful sky scenes make him reflect on the beauty of God’s creation.

“The other reason which keeps me determined to shoot is my love of nature — I love spending hours & hours outside the city,” he said.

He added that contrary to popular belief, he doesn’t take photos by drone. Rather, he requests access to the rooftops of tall skyscrapers.

The exhibition will be open at Katara’s Building 18 through April 13. The hours are from the morning to 10pm daily.
