Dubai in the sky
New Year at Burj Khaleefa
I was in Dubai during winter holidays. We went to see fireworks at Burj Khaleefa on the night of 31st December. Purposely we did not go inside the Burj because I really wanted to capture this shot. We roamed around Beach for couple of hours to find good place to take this shot, finally I settled near Mercato Mall.
When the clock struck midnight, show started. This shot was taken without any tripod.
Burj Khaleefa is the tallest man made structure in the world, standing at 829.8 meter. Construction of the tower started in 2004 and it was officially opened in 2010. Tower has 163 floors having world's second highest outdoor observation deck on 124th floor at 452 m. It also has world's second highest swimming pool on 76th floor.
