This easily became one of my favorite photos of my recent trip to the UAE. We visited the Emirates Palace which is an amazing Abu Dhabi signature 7 star hotel. The building is heavily constructed of gold, silver, marble and Swarorvski crystals making it the second most expensive hotel in the world at a building cost of $3 billion dollars.
Being such a lavish establishment, there's unique architecture and photo ops left and right. The back side of the building faces the sunset which worked out perfectly for this silhouetted reflection off the gold windows on the marble floors. Almost everything in Abu Dhabi is above and beyond and I feel like this image portrays that perfectly.
