Check out Dubai’s Amazing Cloud Scape!
German photographer Sebastian Opitz depicts the “golden” city swathed in clouds, just at the moment mist envelops the infamous and ever-growing skyline. Opitz, who has lived in Dubai for the past four years, took the images from the 85th floor of the Princess Tower, a 101-tall residential tower anchored along the city’s marina.
Opitz recasts the sprawling metropolis in a dreamy new light. Dubai is given its cinematic due here: the peaks of skyscrapers are imbued with a bronze-hue, the trunks of towers swirl in eddies of fog, and an entire city is disappears in minutes. As Opitz puts it, “It is so uplifting to be up there during these weather conditions,and being able to capture the moment with your camera after weeks of waiting for the right conditions is more than satisfying.” Click through for more photos!
