Dubai: Panoramas, Night pics and general photos

Hi all,

I just registered here, having checked this forum incognito for some time already I am very interested in learning stuff about skyscrapers and especially getting to know more about whats going on here in Dubai.

Here are some of pics I took so far driving around town trying to find good spots with nice atmospheres or great views of Dubai's multiple skylines.

Hope you guys enjoy

I went out for some pics again, this time I made several panoramas. The first one shows both skylines, New and Old Dubai. The lighting differs due to automatic white balance , so unfortunately you can see the stitching (6 pics stitched together). Pic was taken from the road leading from Arabian Ranches Intersection towards Um Suqeim.

There are many many birds around Emirates Hills, they love the area. Just think about it: About 6-8 years ago all this was desert and now birds sit and sing in every garden, along the lakes there are many birds like the following which could be considered a resident at one of the lakes behind our neighborhood.



Here another panorama I took 3 days ago from the driving range of "The Montgomery". They got a very nice restaurant and although I don't know anything about Golf I always enjoy this place. Just gimme some good food, a cold beer or two and I can sit for hours enjoying the view :cheers2:

A panorama from January 11th, 2009. Bought the largest ladder I could find and still had to climb the fassade to get on top of our house. My wife was rather scared, don't know when I'll be allowed to climb up there again :lol:
