20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Sharjah, Building

This photo was taken of the sun setting behind the skyline of Sharjah, UAE. To me this photo is so representative of the city of Sharjah - the sun rises and sets as a huge, red orb on the horizon, thanks to the humidity, coastal haze, and blowing dust. The crane in the foreground and buildings behind represent how fast industry is growing - everything is under construction.
