thanks as usual denniss. qwert guy-no new crane. rod is probably part of steel framing.
you dont realize how tall burjd is until you see how the 300m towers that surround it look miniscule.

I thought he had a Canon EOS 450D (12,2 megapixels). I dunno about the lens though.

Is that a swimming pool in the pictures of the roof of the building at the foot of the Burj Dubai?



Btw, I just love these pictures:

Surprisingly

As insane as this structure already is (especially and obviously in terms of its height)

There are apparently certain groups and investors who want to build another structure..........that is even TALLER than the Burj Dubai.

Unbelievable

I mean, in this midst of global recession and economic & financial problems and uncertainty everywhere, these individuals will fight it all out to build and build more of these "WORLD'S TALLEST STRUCTURES"

Very crazy

P.S.
Maybe in the next century onwards, we should make structures that break through the earth's atmosphere and already reach outer space

Like those futuristic space elevator concepts :P
