photoblog image UAE 11: At the Burj Al Khalifa

UAE 11: At the Burj Al Khalifa

Yet another shot from the observation deck. The seemingly tiny pond seen below is where the Dubai Fountain is played out in the evenings. Its jets shoot out water to a height of 150 meters and the whole thing was built at a cost of 800 million dirhams. The buildings seen are mostly upscale bar and boutique restaurants and a gated residential community, I believe.

Eagle's view...I like it, Ayush.
Really interesting point of view - it looks like it could be a model! Such clarity and color!

Strange, my first thought was that when you take a dive, at least you won't miss the pool. The picture has a 3D feel about it.

Opulent, but a glaring absence of life in general. Great spend, few people benefit.

What an amazing view. Looks like you were looking down on Toytown.
Great shot but as a Vertigo sufferer I will keep my feet on the ground.
Are the gates to prevent them getting out?
This view is a dream? maybe a fairy tale?
Absolutely wonderful picture.

If you got it flaunt it I guess Ayush grin
Wow, quite spectacular Ayush. The colours are amazing!
This is a superb image and what a view... there is just too much money in this small country imo ....petersmile
Wow! Astonishing image, Ayush. Seen from that height it almost feels as if you are parachuting in for a landing in the Dubai Fountain.
It really does look like a model of the city. Great height... Good shot.
