That was in Abu Dhabi - Dubai highway, within the AD boundaries and in a very thick fog day. The number of vehicles involved in the pile-up was much smaller, if I well remember around 200.

Something tells me they were planning on getting Tiger there but the events in the past 2 weeks made them change their minds.

Oh & Imre, Altin & 234Sale, stunning pic's as usual!

This is why I posted the pics... because people tend to confine Dubai to being some highrises sticking out of the sand

Hehe no, that would be deadly if it hit someone in the head on the ground.

Those above photos of golf (Michelle Wie) what is the purpose of those? Except of advertising Burj Dubai is something else? Perhaps a new golf court close to Burj Dubai?

@234sale: great panoramic photo

This weekend is the Dubai ladies golf at The Emirates Golf club. Wie was a specially invited guest of Emaar who sponsor the event.

Remember woods tee-ing off the Burj AL Arab, and Federer/Agassi playing tennis? all part of the Advertising for Dubai's main landmarks.

How can someone stand on top of the wind-control structure, without a helmet, and without some tether to ensure that ther is no slip off the ground ?

What about those shots showing her jumping off the floor ?

Does notlook safe to me.

Or, is this staged and photo-shopped in a safe on-ground stage bing set up to take pictures at the OB deck ?

Comments -- ????

Thank you
