Buildings in Dubai Photographed above the Clouds by Daniel Cheong


The cityscape of Dubai is home to some of the tallest buildings in the world with the tallest being the Burj Khalifa. With plenty of amazing vantage points to choose from photographer Daniel Cheong picks only the best and then captures the buildings below.

These photographs capture the dense fog that settles near the tops of skyscrapers, blocking out the streets below. The fog normally occurs when the seasons are changing so capturing these photographs is not something that happens by chance.

The final images that you see below are not straight out of the camera and are actually multiple exposures put into one composite, as the photographer says on his website “I don't pretend to show reality, but an idealized version of it.”
