    Dubai by night

    I took up photography 3 years ago as I wanted to document my travels and learn a new hobby while living in a city which was literally growing around me day by day. My initial photography efforts were centred around the architecture of Dubai, quickly moving onto nightscapes once I got myself a decent tripod. Here are a few shots from around the city by night.


    1. Burj al Arab and the waterways of Souk Madinat.

    3. The more traditional area of Bastakiya

    10. Two Burjes - The Burj Khalifa (17km away) just after it's official opening is in the distance, with the Burj Al Arab (5 km away) nearer the lens, viewed from the cresecent of the Palm

    Thanks everyone. A little taster of the architecture on offer.

    Luckily I get the chance to visit locations when the visibility is good. For so much of the year is it too dusty to shoot cityscapes and the humidity, combined with the spray from the Dubai Fountain, makes shooting around the Burj Khalifa a challenge.

    Excellent night imagery. Like especially 1 and 2 but all are very good.

    Eye candy. The golds, blues, greens and pops of red are so lush against the night sky.
