A view of the new waterfront canal that was inaugurated this year after three years of construction.

A new 3.2km waterfront canal, with a 6.4km-long waterfront has cut through the emirate, starting from the Business Bay and stretching to Safa Park, Al Wasl Road, Jumeirah 2 and Jumeirah Road to end in the Arabian Gulf at the Jumeirah Beach Park.

For those not familiar with these areas, suffice to say that this is quite an engineering feat and has completely changed the look and topography of part of Dubai. It is also one of the most popular sites to photograph these days. Everyone has been there trying to find an interesting and unique way of capturing one of the three bridges along the waterfront.
