edifice

a large, imposing building
~~~~~

Immediately two buildings

came to mind.

…Dubai’s Burj Khalifa Tower, and…

 

…Sydney’s, Opera House.

All images shot with a Nikon D90 DSLR

fitted with a Sigma 18-250mm lens. 

I have included the 35mm equivalent for comparison.

Marvellous how a lens can manipulate distance

These images capture from

the Burj Khalifa’s 148th level.

Focal length 22mm. (equals 35mm eqiv)

 

Same scene…focal length 52mm. (equals 83mm eqiv)

 

…and with 250mm focal length. (equals 400mm eqiv)

The Eiffel Tower 324 metres high

appears taller than it is..

However standing at 828 metres high

Dubai’s

Burj Khalifa

dwarfs the surrounding city.

From the viewing area in the

Burj Khalifa Tower

the Dubai Mall Fountain

is barely visible.

And yet those buildings are

four or five stories high.

Burj Khalifa vs other tall structures.

African Dung beetle has a load

Stamen and leaves win the

A baby which is bigger than most,

but still has many years to go

before it can look mum in the eye.

From Melbourne and Dubai..

some re-posts

which suit the challenge.

DC Photography 19

A curved line and plenty of straight lines.

Old and new buildings with one thing in common….lines.

Some obvious vertical and horizontal straight lines.

Again St Paul’s Cathedral displays some obvious

and not so obvious line.

 

From 555 metres above the ground level

on the 148th floor of Dubai’s

Burj Khalifa Tower.

Zoom in for a closer look and still lines everywhere.

Finally, a never before published image…

well not on this blog 🙂

Still at the Burj Khalifia Tower.

This image is just left of centre…

Seems there were many towering photo

opportunities during our European holiday.

The Tower of Pisa.

Maybe not a tower per se, but

York Minster does tower over visitors…

…and locals alike.

The ceiling of

Notre Dame de Paris

also towers above its visitors.

And still towers over Paris…

…rivalled only by this Parisian tower.

 

On our way back Down Under

we stopped off in Dubai

for a few nights.

I think the Burj Khalifa Tower is my favourite

just for its sheer size.

Looking over the edge of the Burj Khalifa’s

148th floor Observation decknearly 2,000 feet (1821 feet to be precise)

above Dubai city…

…and the buildings below appear to be miniatures.

The Burj Khalifa also stands next to the Dubai Fountain…

 

…where from the edge of the pool we watched…

…the fountain perform to

It’s Time To Say Goodbye‘.

Sadly, for us, it was time to

say Goodbye to Dubai.
