The translucent tent-like roof of the Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi. Water falls from the circle at bottom mimicking rain, a a rare commodity in this desert Emirate.
It looks like a giant umbrella!

It's an amazing feature, and interesting the lengths that man will go to to mimic nature. Great shot Michael

@bluechameleon: Thank you, bluechameleon.
Thanks for sharing this with us Michael. I imagine the man made sights in Abu Dhabi are really something to see. The angle and light on this is excellent and you caught just the right amount of water dripping from the center for us to get a good idea of the building's architect. Good picture.

@Marion: Thank you, Marion. More man-made marvels come up in the new few days.
Wow, that is quite a sight and I can see the 'rain' falling.
Your sharing of some of the desert you see, is an education for us; thank you, Michael.

Graphique et lumineux. Moi ça me fait penser à une toile d'araignée géante... pour Spiderman... :-)

A rain simulator - things you can do when you have enough money ;-)

@MadScientist: True enough. thank you, MS.
Excelent perspective. Interesting its utility. In matter fact, the oil-dollars can do everything. Good work

Très chouette perspective pour cette structure en forme de toile d'araignée sur fond blanc laiteux... Magnifique et beaucoup de suggestion...

gorgeous lines and composition! stunning!

Beautiful composition, the eye enjoys strolling along the structure up and down. I wonder....how much does it cost to keep that water falling?

@Japanalia: Takes lots of energy for the pump which Abu Dhabi has. Thanks, Gabriela.
très beau graphisme, dans cette image.
