Aerial picture of land meeting sea near Dubai

Between Land and Sea

Photograph by Abrar Mohsin

Though Dubai is known for its grandiose cityscapes, it also has a vast and awe-inspiring natural beauty, writes Abrar Mohsin, who captured this aerial view from a helicopter above the seaside UAE metropolis. The serene turquoise water and the golden hues in the desert sand present an interesting contrast, he writes.
