Ornate Minaret

Spotted this ornate minaret near the Madinat Zayed Shopping Centre and Gold Centre.

I'm pretty sure I would be forever dizzy if I lived there, looking up to see all the amazing architecture! And the blue skies, amazing! Doesn't appear to be any air pollution, why is that? Not a large enough population? (yet)

When you fly into Abu Dhabi you can see an orange haze due to the petroleum refineries, so there is some pollution. However, on the ground the air is pretty clean. The late President purposely planted thousands of trees in the city which do a great job of filtering the air. I'll try to snap a street scene to illustrate this.

Ah, yes. Petro refineries, I should have known. But not much from traffic, eh? Very cool about the trees, looking forward to it!
