Dubai's skyscrapers poke through a blanket of fog

 

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.

世界最高建筑,2700英尺高的哈利法塔,在雾毯中显现,迪拜商店和公寓的灯光若隐若现,从下边照出了低空的云雾。来自霍夫布赖顿的地产发展商伊恩•鲍威尔,实地考察了迪拜的最高建筑群,尽情享受其拍摄高楼的乐趣。

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.”

伊恩说:“我们每年有两次大悟,三月一次,九月一次,就是在季节变换的时候。早晨的湿气起到降温作用,雾就出现了。这让我想起星战里面的云星科洛桑以及它的云城。”摄影:伊恩•鲍威尔/Barcroft Media

“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.”

“大多数早上我4点就醒了,就为了寻找雾的迹象与味道——你可以在空气中闻到并感觉到它,”伊恩说。“那天早上,我并没有特别地期待,但是15分钟后我就被雾气环绕。”摄影:伊恩•鲍威尔/Barcroft Media

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.

八年来,伊恩一直在记录这个城市的发展。“迪拜的高楼是如此的神奇——在这里的八年,我亲眼目睹其中80%的建筑物修建过程,”他说。摄影:伊恩•鲍威尔/Barcroft Media
