Extreme Point of View in Dubai

Regular readers of my posts will know that I am a fan of images taken from a high or low perspective. Below you’ll find an incredible photo from an extremely high point of view! Such a photo would never come from my camera, partly because I’m not that good a photographer, but more importantly because I do not have a head for heights.

So the best I can do is share this photo from the Guardian with you. Enjoy!


View from the Burj Khalifa, Dubai

Photographer Alisdair Miller spent two hours climbing the world’s tallest building, the 2,722ft Burj Khalifa, to capture this spectacular picture from its steel pinnacle.

Pro tip: The amazing vantage point is accentuated by using a wide-angle lens and a small aperture to keep as much of the image in focus as possible


This would have been the perfect entry for my Look Up, Look Down challenge!
