Why do there never seem to be any good pictures of this tower? They're always either tiny, or distant, or blurry, or pixely, or at a weird angle, or foggy, etc...

Now boys. No fighting, please ... or I'll have to pull this computer over and bop your heads together!

Thank you for the updated pics! We can finally see the real beauty of the design. Wahoo!

Seriously, why snap at me? You know I'm right. I'd like to see more pictures of this tower taken with a real camera, not a little cellphone gizmo.

And taking snapshots with your cellphone does not qualify as "a lot of effort" in my book.

People in Dubai and Abu Dhabi don't seem to have any trouble using real cameras in that climate.

irrespective of location....its very rare to have a combination of being in the right place to take a decent shot when the sun is going down and theres no dust and its cool enough to stand around with a nikon 200 with 500mm lens and keep moners like you happy....it works like this at this time of the year... youre in the area its reasonably clear you have a chance at a shot ...you take it...if you dont like the pics ....pack your bags and get over and do better yourself mr big nose.

What's with all this getting personal in every post? Can't you stick to the subject without randomly lashing out at people?

the climate in Kuwait in summer is more extreme ( an average high of
48 degrees celsius ) than in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, seriously !
