We’ve had a couple of strange days here in Dubai (weather wise) with some heavy clouds and even a bit of rain from time to time. Luck would have it that I spent a night at the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah and although the air got a bit dusty I did manage to grab a few shots from an angle I haven’t photographed before in Dubai.
The thing about Dubai is that even if you live here, it can still feel sometimes like you are on holiday and this was the case with this night spent at Atlantis. The view from there really makes you appreciate how much Dubai has grown over the years as pretty much nothing you see in this picture was here in 2001 when I first visited the city. As the pace of construction seems to be picking up again, I am really looking forward to see what’s around the corner for this really interesting part of the world.
