2.5 Gigapixel Image Offers An Amazing View Of Dubai

Only way this could have gotten any better is if he base jumped from the top.

Photographer Gerald Donovan channeled his inner Tom Cruise when he traveled to the top of the world’s tallest building, the 2,717-foot-tall Burj Khalifa in Dubai. But he didn’t end his journey at the elevator’s last stop on the 160th floor, Donovan braved a 656-foot trip up a ladder to reach the peak of the structure.

Once he settled into position, Donovan took 70 photographs, 48 of them being 80-megapixel panoramic shots created with the help of a mechanical panoramic tripod. He then maneuvered around a lightning conductor, aircraft beacons and other equipment to photograph the views they obstructed. Donovan then digitally stitched his photographs together to create an interactive panorama of the sight from the top—all for your viewing pleasure.
