The Crown Prince of Dubai has captured truly spectacular scenes of the past few days…

Dubai residents have been waking up with their heads in the clouds this week, as a blanket of thick fog engulfs the country – and one man has captured it better than most. H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum has taken to the sky to film Dubai from above and within the fog.

It should come as no surprise that the Crown Prince of Dubai is privy to the best vantage points across the city. He took to Instagram to share some truly spectacular views of Dubai’s most iconic sites, shrouded in fog.

Two days ago, Sheikh Hamdan shared a video of early-morning Dubai. With its inspirational soundtrack and legendary cityscapes, the video could easily be a promotional clip of the Crown Prince’s home town.

Sheikh Hamdan isn’t the only one who’s been filling his Instagram feed with foggy shots of Dubai. Here are 13 of your best photos of Dubai’s incredible fog.

The thick fog formations comes as we shiver through the coldest January in the UAE on record. Temperatures have been recorded as low as -2°C in Raknah, Al Ain.

Prepare for dust, clouds and a drop in temperatures this weekend, with the coolest weather forecast for Friday.

If you’re driving through the fog of a morning, reduce your speed, be sure to have your lights switched on, and allow extra room between you and the car in front.
