Top hits were right at the start of the storm. There are a few pics out there that others captured.

I'm pretty sure it's highly discounted due to the global economic crisis currently but just like the Empire State Building, it will flourish and dominate.
The grand opening of the interior of Burj Khalifa and especially Armani Hotel and residences will open at 18 March

Wow, this is one of the most impressive pictures of the Burj I have ever seen. And I was following this thread closely.

It looks like it was made from movie or from the future. The Burj hanging within the clouds at night, with a clear visible top, its just mind boggling!

I would imagine he did as he always does before posting pics. Not sure whether you meant to sound like a jerk, but you did...not a good idea to act that way to someone who contributes greatly to this website....especially when you have not.

234sale is taking some of his precious time to make and post images of Burj Khalifa on here and the least you can do is be grateful to him that you can even quote his beautiful picture from this thread. He is dedicated and keeps this thread and UAE forum alive along with a few other dedicated members such as Imre.

@234sale: Amazing photo Sale! Unbelievable vantage point and the image truly speaks for itself!

And that's not even mentioning what it took to actually get that shot. Lesser mortals would have been quivering with fear in the core of the building wetting their pants!

True, I know I would have.

Some people need to be reminded of what it takes to take such a picture before coming on here and sounding like they own a photo gallery.

Actually I was on the edge of the curtain wall, in a thunderstorm, certain death below.
