BLOOOP x 1,000 a/k/a Marina Fountain - #26

They say a photo paints a thousand words... and this one would be "BLOOOP" x 1,000.

Taken at some really cool fountains at Dubai Marina. This area is called "New Dubai" as it is shooting up so fast.

5 years ago it didn't exist, 2 years ago 48 (yes, forty eight) tower blocks (sorry luxury apartments) were initiated and sold in seconds... it is not too far away from completion now...

I'll post some more of this fascinating area soon.

For now I leave you with BLOOOP - a true once only ever occurrence.

Hi Guys,

So pleased that you liked this shot as I love it and it was fun taking it too!

How was it taken? Patience and timing with the camera set at the fastest I could with the Sony point and shoot - 400 iso.

The fountains helped as they were timed very nicely.

I had to kneel in the water and get a bit damp, but that's part of the fun.

I took about 40 shots and I think this is second or third best... and yes I can't help it - I will post at least one more soon...
