I'm afraid none of it really makes much sense to me. I'm not familiar with what's going on this early in the construction process. Anybody care to narrate?

Well there's not much to say really. All that is taking place right now is construction of foundation for the tower. Foundation consist of multiple reinforced concrete piles, some going over hundred meters deep into the ground. Those piles have a shape of a huge column and those circular elements sticking out of the ground are forms for the piles. Where you see those forms there are piles underground. To construct piles you need concrete, slurry and reinforced cages. First drilling rig drills the hole at the same time pouring slurry in so the walls won't collapse. Then steel cages are installed (you can see them lying on the ground) when they are in place, concrete is poured in and slurry goes out. Slurry is usually kept in large containers which are also visible on the pictures. Other than that you have some cranes and other usual stuff.

Was wondering the same. But when you realize there is probably like 50 Celsius degrees in shadow, I really wouldn't be surprised if they are working during the night shifts only.

Just to let know that now in Saudi Arabia it reached 50 Celsius degrees and it is very very hot out there. People not allowed to work between 12 to 3 PM and probably he got the pictures durning that time (and maybe also that's why he was able to take the pictures).
