This has been posted before I think. and is from opening of the Burj on Jan 4th 2010. The photographer is a former SSC member and we were together when that pic was taken. Two other SSC members who posts many pictures, were up there as well.

There are ALLOT of trees around, where do you get the idea that there aren't any? .... plus, even in other dense urban places, you hardly see trees outside parks, people's homes or avenues (as it's the case in Dubai too)

Maybe some trees but definitely missing some greenery. I guess you have to live with it if you live in a desert.

Burj Khalifa looks like an alien tower with those lights beaming out. Nice photo nonetheless.

Speaking of that, have been almost 18 months after the grand opening of BK and still surprise us with photos, news etc.
