Photographer's Note

Dubai Creek or Khor Dubai - an inlet located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Despite its name, Dubai Creek is truly not a creek but an inlet. Dubai Creek has been the reason for Dubai's initial prosperity. The Creek separated the areas of Deira and Bur Dubai. In the 1970s, Dubai Creek was dredged to remove silt and allow larger ships into the inlet. In the past decade Dubai Creek has been losing its importance due to the massive growth of Dubai. The length of the Creek is 14 kilometres (8.7 miles) from its opening at the Persian Gulf.On the picture there is building of Dubai Chamber of Commerce, which mirror-like wall reflects water of the creek.
