OMG, all those cranes!!
And the gentleman you got to pose for you, I love the traditional outfit- it looks like it would be so comfortable in Dubai's heat.

I also think it must be comfortable


I need to thank smussuw again for driving me at first to the WTC Tower and inviting me to the observation deck and later driving me to Business Bay.

If you ever visit Dubai you should go to the WTC observation deck.
















The most evil looking tower in Dubai.
















I don`t like only skyscrapers in Dubai

Absolutely fabulous photo's Tom, I can't wait to see the rest!
There was a photo posted on another thread by you which implied the area of the Al Burj site! Is this true and could you please point out on your GoogleEarth screencap where this site is located? Thanks in advance Tom....great work!

Thanks.

We think it`s the Al Burj. The pics are from Nakheel posted by Imre. It`s better to ask him, because he flew with Nakheel. I can only guess where the pic was taken


Among the next shots are my best Burj Dubai daytime pics.
