The Mysterious Burj al Arab – Jumeirah Beach, Dubai, UAE


Photo of the Day – The Mysterious Burj al Arab – Jumeirah Beach, Dubai, UAE

Today was a whirl-wind day taking us not only through both of the Dubai AbsoluteVisits, but also through both of their mega malls. It was an extremely long and exhausting day, but one that really captured the “new” Dubai.

Our first stop for the day was Jumeirah Public Beach to take photos of the Burj al Arab. From the beach, we thought we would have the perfect angle for some excellent sunrise shots. Instead, we were crippled by fog that hovered around the Burj al Arab. In addition, it was so humid at seven in the morning that our camera lenses were actually foggy.

After a solid 20 minute wait, we were ready to shoot! I captured this shot as the fog was slowly departing the area. Although this photo was taken during sunrise, the fog certainly gives the Burj al Arab even a bit more mystery.

Our tour of the Burj al Arab as well as our other plan across what ended up being a 16 hour day of touring all went extremely well. In fact, we received a private tour of the Burj al Arab that we can’t wait to share in the near future. Enjoy this photo for now and know that there are tons more to come!
