This 24-Hour Dubai Timelapse Is So Beautiful It Doesn't Seem Real

By Jesus Diaz on at

Our friend Gerald Donovan set his camera in front of what the inhabitants of Dubai call "The Centre of Now". After watching this video, I completely understand why they call it that.

He took 2,880 shots over 24 hours; one every 30 seconds, starting at 4am local time on 11/11/11.

It's beautiful. Gerald told me that "the light going down the Burj Khalifa at the start of the video [you can see the light line going down through the whole tower] is a reflection of the full moon setting. Later in the video, you can see the sun reflection doing the same thing as it sets." He also thinks this is the most impressive view of Dubai you can get. I agree with him 100 per cent. [08]
