To get an idea of the size of something, it is often best viewed from above. This is certainly the case with the huge artificial lake in downtown Dubai. Pictured here is the view from the outdoor observation deck of the Burj Khalifa. On the 124th floor with over 450 metres between my lens and the water. From here you get an idea of where I took yesterday’s photograph.
The pattern of the Dubai Fountain’s nozzles can clearly be seen in the lake. This fountain can spray up to 83,000 litres of water into the air at any moment. Some of the jets capable to firing water up to 128 metres high.
