Dubai Ruins by JonasDeRo Dubai Ruins by JonasDeRo
I imagined what Dubai would look like if mankind would disappear and nature would take over, and if the UAE wasn't in de middle of the frickin' desert of course. (perhaps after a climate shift caused by global warming?)

Done today in 8 hours, using this as ref

There is actually a global climate cycle that earth goes through, millions of years ago Europe was all ice and all of today's deserts were covered by vegetation, this will repeat but in the distant future.

Very serene in a sad sort of way. Shows that living nature can just carpet right over our petty civilization and try to start anew.

wait would dubai look green if it was abandoned? after all, its in desert.
although i guess it could be green because of sea level rise, 'cause then the ground would have alot of water.
