The bright lights of Dubai

With its teeming skyscrapers, the Middle Eastern metropolis of Dubai is a place made for after dark. The searing light of the sun has disappeared, while the tall buildings glimmer and twinkle with a myriad of illuminations.

Next to the Dubai Mall – the largest shopping centre in the world – is a dazzling spectacle made for night-time. The Dubai Fountain is a show which sees plumes of water gushing high into the air and dancing to music.

This makes the city a great location for night photography. Armed with my tripod, I took shots of the Dubai Marina area, and then headed to catch the fountain in all its glory.
