Taken this morning 40 minutes after sunrise. Already very hazy and hot, above 35 C. Thanks to my friend Jacques whom I had to wake up at dawn to let me in his apartment so I could get on the balcony! Hopefully from that same balcony I will be shooting the grand opening of the Burj Dubai on 9/9/9.
Digitally blended vertorama made of 3 portrait shots (11mm at f/8), then manually stitched horizontally.
The dark green color of the water is due to sand deposit at the bottom. You can see a lighter green patch where they started to clean it.
