Iftar Sunset & Skyline - #25


A view of Dubai snapped during Ramadan on the way home from work, the sun was setting which is very important in Ramadan for practising muslims.

Once the sun goes down (approx 6:16pm in Dubai on 24th Sept 06) then the fast can be broken and Iftar can begin.

Here is a very interesting blog all about personal experiences of Ramadan

The skyline of Dubai is ever changing... the building on the far right of this picture is the Burj Dubai (as per my previous post).

An interesting factoid for you - look at the bottom right of the shot - 18% of the the WORLDS fixed cranes are in Dubai NOW.

Lovely photo! Dubai is a city of steel and concrete. You will find a building in almost any scenic pic you take! :D
