A huge Emirates flag on a man-made island in front of the coast of Abu Dhabi, the Emirates capital.
Just left of the flag you see the 163m high Hilton Baynunah hotel, finished in 1995.
There is a big mall called Marina Mall and they're also building a ski slope and ice ring in "SnowWorld". Part of the Mall is a 122m high tower that was not open to the public at that time (dec '06). Please see the workshops for photos of the tower.

A good realistic shot of Abu Dhabi corniche, and you used the relatively calm lighting for the shot.....this part of the world gets really harsh light in summer....along with the 48 degrees celcius temps.
