Impossible, maybe Oman, on a very clear day. But even that looks unreal.

There are pictures of both in the same picture. I have one as my background on my laptop. Pretty sure it was taken from the palm island. If you search this thread you will find them perhaps many pages back.

I've had the same pic as a background. I think the pic was from Desert Diver (since it's from ablazewithlight.com). Taken on 10-12-2011. So check around that date in this thread

I don't always change my background, but when I do it means Desert Diver has posted a new picture. (In my Dos Equis voice )

Thanks again Sebastian

join a photo sharing website like flickr or photobucket, then upload it there.

Afterwards copy the Url by right clicking the image, or in photobucket you will see the option, but i suggest you join flickr then come and paste the URL in that icon.

Dont forget to delete http when pasting it here.

I dont know why they make it so hard

Yup, in such long distance shots they are both in it. But always one looks small, in this case the BK.

And now I'm starting to wonder if anyone has a pic of the Burj Al Arab as seen from the Burj Khalifa.

Anyone?

Nah, it's very easy ... unless there is way too much sand in the air


.... and there are many pictures of both of them framed together, pictures mostly taken from The Palm Jumeirah


EDIT: Ooops, too late, already answered

Ok, but that it's on an island helps a lot to notice it. At least here. http://dubaimap.hipa.ae/index.html

Why? It's silhouette is very clear with the sea as background, while the taller 23 Marina (example) is much harder to see with a dark background.

23Marina is twice as far away, so of course it would be harder to spot

What you want. But one thing, even the harbor cranes at Jebel Ali ( 30km away ) are clearly visible because there is lightblue water behind.
