Dubai drone photos

A few more drone photos today, coming from Dubai, one the countries in United Arab Emirates. Dubai has exploded in buildings over the past 50 years, as well as in  population. In 1968, the population was a mere 58,000. In 1985, it had climbed to 370,000 , while it almost doubled in 10 years, to 674,000 in 1995. Today the population stands at a staggering 2,107,000. The topography looks very much like New York City, while over 50 years ago it was more or less like a desert. 
These stunning photos show some of the buildings, including the famous Palm Jumeirah, which were man-made islands and peninsulas in the shape of a Palm Tree. Another similar project is underway, called the World Islands.
