The world's tallest building, the 2,700ft-high Burj Khalifa, appears through a carpet of fog as the lights from Dubai's shops and apartments illuminate the low cloud from below. Ian Powell, a property developer from Brighton, uses site visits to some of Dubai's tallest buildings to indulge his passion for photographing the skyline.
Ian says: "We get fog twice a year, in March and September, when the seasons change. The moisture in the morning cools and the fog start to appear. It reminds me of the cloud planet Coruscant with its Cloud City in Star Wars."
"I wake up most mornings around 4am to look for the signs and smells of fog - you can smell and feel it in the air," Ian says. "That morning I wasn't expecting anything but within 15 minutes I was surrounded by it."
Ian has been documenting the growth of the city for eight years. "The Dubai skyline is such a wonder - I watched 80 per cent of the buildings being built over my eight years here," he says.
