8th Wonder?

The Palm Jumeirah off Dubai, UAE. A persian-gulf created island with housing available.
Interesting that a culture which has always respected and conserved water would consider living around water that is undrinkable!
There is a tiny oil tanker near center-left which gives perspective on the size of this creation.

Amazing. Somewhere they have a 'world' don't they....a facsimile of the real world.

My first impression was of a scorpion with too many legs. Looking at it merely as a shape - it's rather beautiful.
Interesting pic, Goatman.
