The photo by Wijnand Van Till, a Dutch citizen who lives in the emirate, won the landscape category of the competition in the magazine's Netherlands edition. It was taken in April of last year.

Boah. Winning a national geography photo contest is a big thing.

What interest me. How high is that plane? Is it already on the way down?For a direct landing it`s too high. Maybe the overflew Dubai turned 180 degrees and landed.

The second question is, do the skyscrapers of SZR block the fog or is it just a coincidence?
