Photographer's Note

It is played every hour for 5 minutes only. After the first miss we had to wait for full 1 hour, while i guessed the light conditions and put my camera on my little Joby. Even in the second I had to run 3 times back and fro for correcting settings with 5 Secs exposure time and finally I got this shot with my wife just before it stopped.

The Dubai Fountain is the worlds largest choreographed fountain system set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake, at the center of the Downtown Dubai development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It was designed by WET Design, the California-based company responsible for the fountains at the Bellagio Hotel Lake in Las Vegas. Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 25 colored projectors, it is 275 m (902 ft) long and shoots water up to 500 ft (152.4 m) into the air accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. It was built at a cost of AED 800 million (USD 218 million).
