Spectacular Time Lapse Video Shows Dubai as You’ve Never Seen it Before [Video]
Cinematographer Philip Bloom, commissioned by the crown prince of Dubai Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, created this startlingly beautiful time lapse video called Abraj. The name is apparently the Arabic plural for “tower,” and refers to the iconic Burj Al Arab and the enormous Burj Khalifa. Though they are the centerpieces, the film introduces viewers to the stunning beauty of the city. Turn up the volume, make it full screen, and let the imagery just wash over your eyeballs.
