It is hard to appreciate just how tall Dubai's skyscrapers are without some reference point.  One such reference is the clouds which occasionally show up in the form of fog rolling in to the city.  Contributor Moadh Bukhash used a drone to show the city immersed in a thick blanket of fog.  The aerial views of the skyscrapers towering above these clouds gives you a sense of the height to which these giants reach; the tallest (Burj Khalif) has been the world's tallest skyscraper since 2010.

When people think of the United Arab Emirates, they tend to think of its two great cities: Dubai and Abu Dhabi.  What's forgotten is that the UAE is actually a good-sized country in terms of land area: it covers almost 84k square km, or a bit over 32k square miles.  Only a small portion of that land is urban.  In this drone video by top contributor Moadh_Bukhash, you'll get a bird's eye view of a very different UAE, a stunningly beautiful landscape far from the towering skyscrapers.
