Sure, it's a publicity stunt, but what a cool idea (and for a good cause: raising awareness about endangered birds of prey). The BBC, in conjunction with Freedom Conservation, attached a camera to a trained eagle named Darshan, who swooped down from Dubai's Burj Khalifa, filming as he flew.
A massive bolt of lightning just struck the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa — and a photographer was there to catch it the precise moment when it all happened.
As if the Burj Khalifa wasn't spectacular enough, a Dubai-based think tank has proposed a radical installation that would encase the entire building in a super-lightweight, reflective and semi-transparent material suspended off its central spire.
Remember National Geographic photographer Joe McNally's incredible photograph taken from the top of Dubai's Burj Khalifa? This behind-the-scenes video follows his vertigo-inducing trip up the spire, with plenty of views of the city below.
National Geographic photographer Joe McNally climbed to the top of Dubai's Burj Khalifa so the rest of us don't have to. He posted this image to his Instagram account, adding, "My old battered shoes climbed the worlds tallest building today. What an amazing structure! Tweeting from 820 meters straight up!"
