Creek Bird and Dubai looking quite fine - #7


Dubai can be a really pleasant place during the cooler months, Oct through to April / May approx are great. The city has a large amount of lush green parks, public beaches and beach parks and just out side of the city there are beautiful beaches such as Jebel Ali.

This shot is taken at another really nice area of Dubai - The Creek - this is a sea inlet that runs through the centre of old town Dubai. The waterway is traditionally import and caries a lot of sea traffic in the form of dhows and local very cheap water taxis called abras.

This shot was taken from a nice waterfront restaurant called The Boardwalk just as the sun was setting on a Friday (Friday & Saturday are the weekend in Dubai not Sat / Sun).

Lastly - credit where it is due - this shot was actually taken by my good wife, however it is such a great shot I had to include it!

Walking on the Creek at the sunset, away from the noise traffic is one of relaxing experience of the life...
