Fall is creeping in

Nearing golden hour at the Saganashkee Slough.  Near this spot there was once a small hand-dug canal that fed water from a man made lake at Blue Island to the I&M canal.  It was probably little more than a ditch through a swamp, but it supposedly carried some freight traffic.  When the Cal-Sag channel was dug, the excavated soil created a dam making this this slough.

Seen at the Dubai mall.  
If you are going to have public art, this is how to do it!  I’m told this display is a tip of the hat to Dubai’s early days when pearl diving was a significant source of income.
