Photographer's Note

The international media is full of amazing information about the huge development that is taking place in Dubai at the moment, from the images of the Palm development to the 300 man-made islands of "The "World", built in the waters of the Arabian Gulf. Along with these amazing properties, we can now add the world's tallest building....the "Burj Dubai". It recently passed the 600 metre mark and is still not complete....no one really knows what the final height will be as it has been a closely guarded secret for many years.
While I was at the camel pens, some weeks ago, I took this image from about 5 kms away, and you can clearly see the difference between the existing skyscrapers on Sheik Zayed highway and this new mega-structure. By the way those towers surrounding the Burj Dubai are at around 60 stories high. The dusty look surrounding the buildings is in fact dust, "kicked up" by the multitude of heavy machinery in the area.
