Virtual view of Dubai from the top of the world

Now you can get a feel of how it must feel to sit atop the world’s highest building, just like Tom Cruise did during the filming of Mission Impossible Four, ‘Ghost Protocol’.

The 360 degree panorama from the very top of the tallest building on earth, Dubai’s 828 meters high Burj Khalifa, was created by Dubai based photographer Gerald Donovan using over 70 individual photos and a mechanised panoramic tripod head.

The image has been released to celebrate the second Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Photography Award (HIPA), which will take place in Dubai in March.

“This is an extraordinary image taken from an extraordinary location. It reflects the goals of HIPA, to extend the boundaries of photography and celebrate images of unusual beauty and quality that are truly outstanding,” said His Excellency Ali bin Thalith, the General Secretary of the award.
