Pic(k) of the week 24: Power of Dubai

First time visitors to Dubai often comment on the amount of high tension electricity lines across the Dubai desert bordering the East side of the city. It is no secret that Dubai has a huge demand for power. Today the primary fuel for electrical power generation is still gas, while there are plans to go to clean coal (whatever that is...?!) and solar power generation by the end of the decennia. By the end of 2030, several nuclear reactors should be sourcing our power needs.

The image above was shot just before sunset and show some of the high tension lines powering up the city. I really like the amount of detail my new Nikon D800 is providing me. Look at the flock of birds just above the Burj Khalifa!
