When the skies go dark, Dubai lights up the desert night.

THIS TIMELAPSE represents over 2,000 images taken by photographer Richard Bentley in May of 2012.

All of the photos were captured in RAW with Richard’s Canon 5DmkII. This video caps off his ‘Dubai trilogy’ — if you can’t get enough, go full screen and watch Dubai 1.0 and Dubai 2.0 now. Worry not, your boss isn’t looking.

The score of Dubai 3.0 was composed by Athar Saeed, and the filmmaker requests that you “please do him the honour of listening with the sound up on really good speakers!”

Done.
