Canadian expat Emile Hendrik, 47, is the winner of Gulf Times Instagram Contest-VI.
The stunning aerial view of Pearl Qatar was the most liked among the 20 pictures included in the contest.
Hendrik, a professional pilot who has so far logged 17,000 hours of flying time, took the picture while leaving Qatar on a holiday trip.
“The day I took this photo I was leaving Qatar on a personal holiday and as I looked out the window with my usual enthusiastic amazement, I saw this great photo opportunity as well as many others that day,” he says.
Hendrik loves to share unforgettable things he sees while travelling and has won a few accolades for photos published in travel/ adventure magazines.
Flying airplanes since 1986, Hendrik has been a resident of Qatar since February 2003.
