I spent a fantastic afternoon and evening in Dubai today together with local commercial photographer Catalin Marin. Catalin took me to a great spot for photographing the stunning skyline of Dubai, high up on the roof of a building in Dubai’s Business Bay with great views in all directions. We arrived on the roof around 3.30 pm, in plenty of time to marvel at the changing light playing out over the urban landscape as the sun sank towards the horizon, and in particular, over the shimmering, iridescent glass façade of the incredible Burj Khalifa, currently the tallest building in the world – a jewel in the Arabian desert.
The photographer you can see in these shots is Catalin – who, although he has photographed this skyline many times, says that he never tires of the view and always finds something new to photograph – not hard to believe when you see this view first-hand. Check out his website here - www.momentaryawe.com - there are some great photographs there, and in particular, if you are a fan of the architecture of Dubai, some amazing shots of the Dubai skyline, including an image of the Burj Khalifa in mist which always stops me in my tracks every time I see it.
Hope you enjoy looking at this sequence of shots as much as I enjoyed making them – as usual, click on any image to view larger, and feel free to drop me a comment if you’d like to.
Thanks to Catalin for his generosity in sharing this location with me.
