The Infamous DXB Series - Pt 1 of 3 - The SZR - #171

Shot 1 - Sheikh Zayed Road

I know I featured some ariel shots before, however these are fresh and of DXB Centrale... these were taken from my flight to Bahrain on Friday morning.

These shots are for info more than photo prowess! Taken from a plane so not the best photo conditions... please forgive!

This is a shot of Sheikh Zayed Road, the highest towers in Dubai and also the main thoroughfare.

A different view of the skyline of 2 days ago... again, Burj Dubai far right and the Emirates Towers on the left.

This is just amazing!
I love the fact all those skycrappers are located in the main street and its surroundings are houses not very high!
that's a great view of your city!

Great aerial shot!

The areas on either side of Sheikh Zayed look so dry and barren!
