Downtown Dubai Skyline Seen from The Dubai Mall

Dubai’s famed skyscrapers stand tall as the skyline of Dubai’s most prolific part of its financial district, Downtown Dubai, an area of very upscale hotels and office buildings, centered around the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall. This photo of Dubai in its myriad colors was taken from the Dubai Fountain viewing area of the Dubai Mall, across the manmade lake that surrounds the Burj Khalifa, the shallow water of which reflects the colors of the lights of the towers. Great view! If the photo looks oversaturated, that was purposeful, it looks striking on LCD HD screens.
