Panoramas, Night pics and general photos by Desert Diver

Hi all,

since all my posted pics are uploaded on my website and yet it will take some time for me to create galleries in HTML I thought I'd open a thread for my pics here on SSC. At least for the ones I personally really like. Comments and suggestions are always welcome of course.

Hope you guys enjoy.

Thanks for your positive response I will eventually post all pics which I think are nice, but was planning to leave out the dozens of pics of the top of Burj Dubai and of site details that were only to show the construction progress.

Proceeding chronologically:

I went out for some pics again, this time I made several panoramas. The first one shows both skylines, New and Old Dubai. The lighting differs due to automatic white balance , so unfortunately you can see the stitching (6 pics stitched together). Pic was taken from the road leading from Arabian Ranches Intersection towards Um Suqeim.

There are many many birds around Emirates Hills, they love the area. Just think about it: About 6-8 years ago all this was desert and now birds sit and sing in every garden, along the lakes there are many birds like the following which could be considered a resident at one of the lakes behind our neighborhood. Will be exciting to see when the first of those choose to move to JLT



Here another panorama I took 3 days ago from the driving range of "The Montgomery". They got a very nice restaurant and although I don't know anything about Golf I always enjoy this place. Just gimme some good food, a cold beer or two and I can sit for hours enjoying the view
