It's nice that it's nearly finished but at the same time it's kinda sad and hard to believe it's almost over.

Saint Nazaire: that's ridiculous! That shot is absolutely brilliant! From Xupu bridge to the factories of Waigaoqiao is 28 kilometers and they are visible EASILY! Must have been taken on the clearest day ever in Shanghai. When was it taken?

World's best modern supertall for me. Every shot is breathtaking.

Although old, but with this tower almost completed, remembering the two (crazy) russian guys that scaled the tower back in february.

I saw the video just recently and I couldn't believe it... I was dizzy just in my chair... My stomach hurts just to see the video...I know I wouldn't dare to that even with the security equipment the workers use, and those guys did that just holding with their hands to the handrail...
http://youtu.be/gLDYtH1RH-U

The guy is standing at the VERY TOP of the crane!!!! with absolutely nothing to hold him, but seven-hundred meters of free falling...

Love those pictures from up on the crane. I think the only people that won't like them is the ones holding the Insurance Policy.
