Looks like an architect's scale model down there! I had this stunning overview of Sheikh Zayed Road and Downtown Dubai, with the Burj Khalifa easily dwarfing everything else in sight. Also visible: the Dubai Mall (the world's largest shopping mall by area - to the right of the Burj Khalifa), the Dubai Fountain (in the artificial lake at the bottom of the Burj Khalifa), the Emirates Towers and Sharjah in the distance. Enjoy the view! [Canon EOS 40D + Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC IF Macro]

What a spectacular Landscape. The Buj Tower seems really small at this height.

That is amazing photo! You can even see Sharjah! The creek, Deira, Dubai, the WTC on Sheik Al Zahed. Truly impressive. I have never seen it with such clarity. It is such a shame I usually fly out of DXB at night..

Great and unique shot. You can only get such clarity a few months a year. It's also pretty rare (at least for me) to fly by with the Burj Khalifa area to the right since the airport is on the far side of the photo.

Lovely overview! All those concrete and metal down there in the midst of the sands and not a patch of green anywhere, except maybe that golf course. Perfect example of industrialization!
