Pic(k) of the week 47: SUNSET OVER DUBAI CREEK HARBOUR

As a natural harbour, the Dubai Creek was historically a busy regional hub for trade, fishing and pearling. This is where it all began...  

The end of the Creek is the location of one of Dubai's latest large scale developments, called "Dubai Creek Harbour"; a residential area overlooking the Creek and the neighboring Ras al Khor Wildlife sanctuary, known for its flamingos. It is also the place where the worlds highest "tower" (non-residential)  designed by Spanish architect Calatrava will be built; supposed to surpass the 820m Burj Khalifa.

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the part that is open to the public as of now. The art work of three flamingos against the Dubai skyline in the west, begs to be photographed. I shot quite a few different frames and allowed people to vote on social media for this weeks Pic(k) of the week!
