View from the Burj Khalifa (No.1 in a Series)

Our 60 second space odyssey flight (elevator ride is such an unimaginative description) to the 124th floor observation tower of the Burj Khalifa was just the beginning of this quintessential "room with a view" experience. I don't think that I can describe how I felt when I gazed out, and so far down, to the roof tops of Dubai. I know that I was incredibly lucky to be there; with my husband, my camera and my tripod. We stepped onto to observation platform at about 4:00 pm, so we had plenty of time for daylight and twilight views. More to come . . .

  1. I was in Dubai last August during Ramadan. Unfortunately all ‘flights’ up the Burj were fully booked during my stay. After seeing this, I will have to get back there before my stay in the Middle East comes to an end.

  2. It doesn’t look real! Rather, it looks like an architect’s model of a future development. Your detail and color are wonderful.

  3. I am not moving from my computer until this series is complete. What a VIEW Barbara! You have masterfully captured this scene, my dear friend, this is captivating… as a matter of fact, I just looked in the dictionary, and next to the entry for “Captivate” they mentioned your great image here!
