There is a high fence around so that is all you can get if you don't have a drone or something similar to take pics

I'm sure there must be at least somebody who tried to take pix with a drone!

The problem is not the fence or the drones, but that people who drive by (and took those pictures) have a mobile phone ready at hand, not a zoom camera.

Oh why would you make such a pessimistic assumptions?

If you'd be right then it'd mean either:

a) City of jeddah is short of true skyscraper fans who would go for a huge trouble of bringing digital camera with them on the way to work to photograph worlds tallest tower rising in their neighborhood.

..or

b) City of jeddah is short of digital cameras

btw photographic drones are getting cheaper every day. This thing below is just around 1000$.

In my opinion the best pictures we could get right now (and affordable to most) would be to get as close to the fence and shoot pictures above the fence with some king of a "camera on a stick solution".

i always wondered if that stuff is legal. like putting a friend on your shoulders and they take photo across the fence and that stuff. i mean they put the fence there for more than just keep the dirt in, but also the eyes out don't they .

As long as you are outside the fence (or in the air - drones) you are not trespassing and you should be fine

But then again this is Saudi Arabia, they have some crazy laws out there

Plus the tower is already visible above the fence so it (the fence) doesn't make much difference anyway

when i was in china and saw a giant construction sites, but didn't know what it was about, i took a friend on my shoulders and she made a photo over the fence, it was at night and it felt a little bit exciting doing it, because i never was sure if it's allowed to do it :p

Many Many thx alsaif2012

It's rising!

They're just working on the first 2 floors. Just wait until a few floors are ready.
