Have a Look Straight Down at the Tallest Building on Earth

New, 2 comments

It's hard to, uh, top a photo taken atop the world's tallest building—or the behind-the-scenes look at such an undertaking, for that matter—but Gerald Donovan has miraculously managed to do just that. In January, the photographer unveiled a panoramic shot, actually dozens of separate photos stitched together, taken from the top of the Burj Khalifa; recently, though, he released an unedited version that shows the spire of the structure itself, plus the crew and a bunch of equipment that made the shoot possible. So yes, here's a look straight down at—not from, but at—the tallest piece of architecture on Earth.
