Stunning Panorama From the Tallest Building in the World

Have you ever wished you could sit atop of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and take a look around like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 4? It's your lucky day, at least if you are content with a virtual experience substitute.


You can now immerse yourself in a stunning 360 degree panorama view from the top of the Burj Khalifa, a building that reaches 2,722 feet or 830 meters. The panorama — which is so gargantuan it takes 2.5 GB of hard disk space — has been released in celebration of the second Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Photography Award (HIPA) and was first reported on by Gizmodo.


Dubai-based photographer Gerald Donovan made the image using 48 different panorama pictures shot at a resolution of 80 megapixels and then stitched together.
