it looks like it

when you first pointed it out,
i thought the lighting was from another building because they were on opposite sides of the picture

Great pictures! Especially the last one is just fantastic....
On it Dubai really looks like a futuristic city from some Sci-Fi movie , like Coruscant or something!
And BD just looks huge, looks like BD is around 2 1/2 times the height of the highest tower on the left to it (Burj Dubai Lake Hotel i believe) .

Those pictures are incredible, especially that skyline shot. Even taller buildings are already being planned, and they'll keep coming even when oil's gone. Just imagine what that skyline will look like 10, maybe 20 years from now. Burj Dubai might look tiny compared to what will be there.

This morning a major accident at SZR: Mobile crane (working on the metro station @ Emirates Towers) felt over the road causing even more heavy traffic than other days.



However I got some more time to take pictures of BD!











Enjoy!
