Joe Mcnally: Shooting from the Tallest Building in the World

Earlier this year pro photographer Joe Mcnally took a (long) trip to the top of the tallest building in the world to take this picture from the Burj Khalifa. The Burj Khalifa tower stand tall at 2,722 feet (around 830 meters) and the view from the top is both magnificent and frightening at the same time.

In this short behind the scenes video you can watch how the picture was taken – do you dare to look down?
