hot or cold

Snow in June surprised even the Canadians.

 

In 2007, this sight surprised me.

 

Dubai, in October, was still hotter

than Geelong in mid-summer.

 

Heat.

~~~~~

give out steady light without flame.
~~~~~

The Arabian Desert sun was blocked by sand/dust

and reduced to a glowing ball in the sky,

long before it found the horizon.

 

Decorated trees glowed in the night along

the banks of the Dubai Creek…

 

…this glow…

 

…along with lights from nearby highrise buildings

was reflected in the water of the Dubai Creek.

is only 309.6 metres or 1,016 feet tall.

golden

coloured or shining like gold.

The only thing we prebooked before our 2016 visit

to Dubai was High Tea at the Burj Al Arab. 

So, up the escalator…

 

…past the gold columns to the elevator doors,

we journeyed.…

 

…eventually reaching the sky View Bar

and more golden decor…

 

Still more gold was to be found 

at the bottom of our first (complimentary) drink.

One-Word-Sunday22-Tall

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

tall

of great or more than average height,
especially (with reference to an object)
relative to width
 

~~~~~

At 2,716 feet high, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa,

in my opinion, rates as tall.

 

 

Using my 18-253 mm focal length Sigma lens

at 250 mm focal length

 

 

At 52 mm focal length about

the same as the human eye.

 

 

The scene at

18 mm focal length.

The last three images were taken from

the observation deck on the 148 floor

of the Burj Khalifa.
