Burj Khalifa downtown, Dubai on a foggy morning. Shot from our office building(51+12 floors) terrace. It's heavenly view on every foggy day.

After the results:

Whoaawww!! Blue in a Free Study!!! Really feeling like being in the heaven now :)

Well, about the photo now... Dubai (UAE) experiences this sort of fog frequently during Nov to May every year. Its really fascinating to be soaked in the fog like this. Recently our office is shifted just close to the Biggest needle on earth (Burj Khalifa). What else a photographer needed! Its stunning view from our office terrace.

On this particular day, it was dense fog entering the city from the desert. As soon I reached the office, climbed up to witness the heavenly view. I was stunned by the nature's beauty for a while. Took little while to take out my camera and shoot. The fog was slowly entering into the city (right to left). I like this shot the most, where just half the city blanketed and the other half is just naked. Beautiful scene to be soaked in rather capturing. ;)

Few more shots in this series are here.


Thank you so much guys for the votes and lovely comments.

Have fantastic days ahead.

Cheers.

i wanna read the story to this one - great timing and one of those shots where (imo) that wide angle curvature on the edges actually works to your advantage.

Very impressive shot.

I don't know if the clouds were photoshopped in or you actually saw this thru the lens. Either way I dig it and I've never seen a shot quite like this before.

AWESOME! The Burge is more than twice as tall as the next tallest building. I love the fog/sand, but find the distortion at the far left really distracting.
