The view out a back window of the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, one of the few 7-star hotels in the world.
I have been reading about this place and how it's being built up for tourists. I'm glad to see it through your eyes, Michael!

@Steve Rice: thank you, Steve.
Beautiful workmanship and design. I think they might use so much blue and green in their work to offset the hotness of the area. A visual cooling down. Thanks for showing us the "inside" of this very opulent building.

A SEVEN star hotel?! I expect it costs a fortune...I hope it was worth it, although from this picture it looks like it was. Great angle and idea for the shot.
