whoa, awesome stuff stained! I was out when it initially was just thundering before the rain... and the sky was lightening up like anything.

I live in the Umm Sequim area and have a great view of the Burj Dubai from my balcony. The lightning was all over! I would never be able to catch a shot like that but it captures perfectly! What an excellent night for storm-watchers - save the leakage of rain in my bedroom window!

caption competition:

because Emaar's application was stuck in a queue at DEWA, Shk Mo used the 'wasta' card...
and then, there was light.

Caption comp:

1. "Someone is trying to build a frankenstein in the burj." (what i said in my previous comment.)
