Palms in the Limelight

Palms of the Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa at Night, Dubai, UAE

A row of glowing palms sets the stage for shoppers and restaurant goers at the Dubai Mall. The Burj Khalifa serves as an ever present backdrop as it dominates the night time skyline. Although it is not the sharpest of photos (I snapped this shot handheld at 1/6 of a second shutter speed), it gives a sense of Downtown Dubai's atmosphere after dark.


  1. That's a pretty amazing photo and an equally amazing building.

  2. Impressive tower!Excellent shot, the lights are beautiful!I see different perspectives in this composition, it's really interesting!
    Special hugs today to Becky, Happy Mother's Day to her!

  3. Your photo is a lovely advertisement for downtown Dubai. I really like this picture-postcard scene!

  8. Tell me, how jealous were you when you see these glowing palms in Dubai?
    How could they outdo Charleston (again?)! ;o)

  9. nothing to complain about, as far as "sharp" is concerned !!!
    these are incredible views you're showing us in this series, doug ... like a modern version of "one thousand and one nights" ...
    this modern tower of babel is both fascinating and frightening, i think !

  10. Striking contrasts between the built environment and the tree. I'm just trying to imagine the atmosphere there. It must be quite unique.
