The only way to wonder around Dubai in August is very late at night. Even then temperatures rarely drop below 30 degrees C! This photograph took two visits before I could capture it. My first attempt was stopped by a security guard on a segway saying that photography wasn’t allowed, before I even got my tripod up. The reflection of the modern buildings on this perfectly calm, artificial lake was so perfect that I had to come back. The next night I came back with all the gear setup, walked up and quickly took this photograph.
