At the top of the tallest building in the world - The Burj Khalif in Dubai. I can tick that off my bucket list now.


@ART no I did not set this up, although I did wait for awhile until I thought everyone was in just the right spot. People would come and go, walk in front of me and without knowing, interfering with my composition, so patience was the key in taking this shot. By the way the sunset was spectacular, even though you probably can't really tell. I'm not sure if this image was worth us paying $155.00 to go up a lift, or not, but I'll let you decide :-)

Beautiful shot, Anita. Worth waiting for. I don't know about $155, ouch! (each?) I suppose if access were cheap the place would be tightly packed.

Amazing shot! Would never have guessed this was yours. I was one of your 10s and thanks for saving me $155.

Well done Anita - this is something very special. Dubai is not the sort of place I would imagine you going though it does look an amazing place. Congrats on the ribbon!
