Yeah, I got a point, a very clear one ... but it is totally off-topic, as your rumbling was

I plan to see the fireworks display from somehow close this time. Last year was some 10 km distant, the year before that, much more distant and drove by not long before midnight.

I am planning for s spot around 2 km away that's perfect distance-wise to enjoy the show and take good pictures. The only problem would be reaching there. Traffic in the city is gridlocked at that time, and the Metro would be super crowded.. Hmmmmm.......

There is an official viewing area next to Al Khail Road, which is ~2 kilometres from the Burj Khalifa.

I would suggest that you visit this website.

Nah, too crowded and would meant get stuck in traffic. I have been photographing the tower for many years (7 to be precise) so I know a place or two offering both good views and accessibility.

Anyway, I haven't fixed anything yet, who knows, I end up in a completely different place (party)
