Hi all.

An awesome thread revival I never saw coming with the megatall section. This thread deserves to be here and should be a sticky IMHO.

Cheers
Ray.

This thread is featured, because Burj Khalifa is the tallest building on earth. This is the reason why it's here and Shanghai Tower or Abraj Al Bait not.

It's a beauty, and i'm glad they chose a glass facade and not something like many other tacky/ugly buildings in Dubai.

So a while back I took this video of Burj khalifa slicing the clouds I thought it is worth a share .. I hope you enjoy (Make sure you watch it in HD)



And here's a pic I took when it turned out totally cloudy
