Emirati photographer Abdulla Aljunaibi took breathtaking photos and video of the city of Dubai enveloped in thick fog on Wednesday.


The never-before-seen photos show the emirate’s skyscrapers hidden in fog, making it look surreal.


Aljunaibi wrote on his Twitter account, “Dubai... where the sky embraces a city…”


Aljunaibi, who is based in Abu Dhabi, took the aerial shots of Dubai landmarks.


Aljunaibi allowed Gulf Today to use the photos and videos.


One of Aljunaibi’s photos shows the Burj Khalifa from a unique angle, exhibiting the intricate details of the world’s tallest building.


Another photo shows Sheikh Zayed Raod and the skyscrapers hidden in fog with the street lighting giving it a golden hue.

Aljunaibi also took a timelapse video of Abu Dhabi. 


He wrote, “The capital of peace as you have never seen it before: Abu Dhabi.”


Nevertheless, the city of Dubai remains the most preferred destination for any traveller and adventurer. The city always lives up to the expectation of everyone. It has a place for all.

The bursting ambience of the emirate engulfs over 200 nationalities. The city appreciates and celebrates each and every culture.


The Emiratis are hospitable and embrace all cultures.

Burj Khalifa has been the subject of many photography sessions and documentaries.


The man-made structure marks national days and share solidarity messages with major events from around the world.


Last week, Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum scaled the Burj Khalifa for the second time.


The Crown Prince of Dubai said, “828 metres of excitement 🧗🏻👀 #burjkhalifa…”


The first time was in Nov.25, 2013.




In October, Emirati adventurer and photographer Ahmad Al Bedwawi took breathtaking photographs of the Burj Khalifa in the middle of the night from the highest peak in Dubai.

Ahmad, a member of the Celestial Exploration Team, spoke to Gulf Today over the phone.


He said, “At an altitude of 1,300 metres on Dubai’s highest peak of Umm Al Nosoor Mountain in Hatta, I captured the Burj Khalifa from a distance of nearly 120km.”


In January, Emirati firefighter Rashid Abdulla Aziz Al Shehhi made full use of his hobby, photography. He took pictures – and a video – of the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa, standing 100 kilometres away – in another emirate, Ras Al Khaimah.


Al Shehhi reportedly climbed Yanas Mountain in Ras Al Khaimah to get a perfect video of the iconic tower block.


And, why not, the city Dubai has its charm. Lets’ revel in it.
