Techincally, from the moon or beyond...

Be an interesting to see if you could snap it from Rak / Al Ain

Now I remember taking a sunrise photo, and in the sun you could see the Jebel Hafeet Al Ain



Found It..

Imagine if you could work out where to take the sunset with the burj bang in the middle of it... This is about 175KM away

With your 800mm lens on you 5DmkII, you might get on the front of national geographic with that shot.

With great lenses you are able to photograph Burj Khalifa even from 175km away? The circle above indicates that, right?
