How is Doha like from above?

Take off from Doha International Airport, I was fortunate to be able to get this magnificent view of Doha from above. Taken from the window of Qatar Airways, flight QR019, 18 feb 2011, around 8am. Canon EOS 7D. Tamron 18-270mm.

Al Ghanim area, few minutes after take-off. Corniche about to appear on the right


Start of Corniche and Museum Islamic Art.


Doha Corniche and West Bay skylines


Doha skylines. The legendary Sheraton hotel on the bottom middle


Tornado Tower, Qtel Tower, City Center. Can you recognize them?


West Bay Lagoon, Zig Zag Tower, and Doha Golf Club

The last two are not Doha’s but worth showing here: Lusail City and Al Khor.

Lusail City is under construction
Al Khor (clockwise): Al Khor town, Industrial Area, Al Khor Community complex, Purple Island, and Al Khor Bay

    1. Thanks Mike. I was fortunate as the sun was on the other side of plane. I needed to place the lens as straightly perpendicular as possible to glass window to avoid any glare.
