Giant Sundial

Shadow of Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai, UAE  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved

The shadow of the world's tallest building moves across 
an arid urban landscape like a giant sundial. What time is it? Time to gape in disbelief at the Burj Khalifa's astonishing height!

To see more of my photographs from the United Arab Emirates see my new tumblr blog, Hue and Eye Photography.


  1. That is so cool, Doug. I assume you were IN that tall building while taking the picture. It's incredible to "see" its height by the scale of the other buildings!

  2. I like very much the shadow of this huge tower which comes to caress the city

  3. Hi Doug ... Also time to gape in disbelief as to how you can capture such enormous landscapes so clearly through your lens. Have a fab weekend J.

  4. 11.55am?
    Time to take a break.
    Your tumblr site is just like here when you change the display setting to mosaic for special occasions?!
    (with more previously unseen photos)
    Man, I was hoping to see some B&W soft porn on your new site thou. :o)

  5. The cars on the freeway provide a great sense of scale here - they are so tiny (!).
    Love the bird's eye perspective and the almost vertical view to the ground.

  6. When I saw the top of your picture, I knew it was Dubai. We have also been on the Burj Khalifa.


  7. That's some shadow! The home page of the Tumblr blog looks great. All the best with that...

  8. aha! i think that'll be the largest sundial in the world.. :)

  9. This one gives me vertigo! Nice composition!
    Have a nice day.
