Room with a View

Observation Deck, Burj Khalifa, Dubai, UAE  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved

The view from 124 floors above Dubai shows the expanse of the UAE's desert landscape. Needless to say there is plenty of room
 for the city to expand out there.

On a different topic, we switch from one view to another...

My photographer friend, George Munday, of Waterford Co., Ireland 
is finalizing a book project, a collection of his fine art photographs called 
"Waterford, A County Revealed". 
Please take a moment to check out this link to his website to learn more.


  1. These structure are impressive, I hope to see for myself someday!
    God bless you!

  2. Looks huge!
    Nice light and detail, specially when shooting agaist the sun.

  3. A fine view of the countryside around the city. The image has a very good mood about it. I like the lighting and mild colors very much.

  4. what a vista .... looks sci-fi ... a big room overlooking the minions

  5. Your composition makes the building as impressive as the landscape Doug.

  6. Firstly, I have to say WOW, what an image, those high-key gentle tones reflecting around give a delightful softness to the graphic composition.

    And secondly, a H_U_G_E thank you Doug,for promoting my project. Beautifully timed because it links nicely to the last bit of the start posted today (Monday)...if you see what I mean!

    Thanks too for the frequent visits and encouragement, it means a lot.

  7. brilliant use of backlight and format here, doug, and a most impressive image per se ... the view from up there must be out of this world, even though there can't be that much to see ...

  8. Wow – a stunner!
    Nice perspective and excellent use of light.

  9. So clean and full of light.
    Great composition and the models did a great job.

  10. Very clever play with lines! Nicely composed.
    Have a nice day.
