Doha Nightscapes

Here’s a brief series of nightscapes shot in May 2014 in the West Bay district of Doha, the capital of Qatar, per capita the richest country in the world, and one of the fastest growing cities in the world.

I visited here a few times before, and the differences are, as you might imagine, striking. To see what this area looked like in 2011, check out this post; for a look back to 2010, go here.

      Thanks – Yes, it’s quite the skyline.

    Amazing pictures Bob! I always heard Qatar is more affluent than Dubai, and I can clearly see that’s true from your pictures!

    1. Bob R says

      Thanks – that affluence and the growth that’s associated with it here comes with a flip side, parts of which are very dark.

    Great shots!
    I’ve never seen Doha but those buildings look impressive and I love the colours coming out of some of them!

      It is fairly amazing, but a bit on the excessive side for my tastes. 🙂

    Fantastic shots! I’ve always struggled with taking shots at night, the colours provide some great contrast though.

  5. Karen Warren says

    Quite a contrast to the surrounding desert!

  6. Impressive, but it all looks rather sterile… Are they rich because of oil money?

    1. Bob R says

      Not oil – Qatar has the third largest natural gas reserves in the world.
