Emirati adventurer and photographer Ahmad Al Bedwawi took a breathtaking photograph of the Burj Khalifa in the middle of the night from the highest peak in Dubai.

Ahmad, a member of the Celestial Exploration Team, spoke to Gulf Today over the phone.

He said, “At an altitude of 1,300 metres on Dubai’s highest peak of Umm Al Nosoor Mountain in Hatta, I captured the Burj Khalifa from a distance of nearly 120km.”

The photographer used a Canon camera lens 600mm at 2 am.

He said, “It took a couple of days to reach the peak exerting much effort, as mountains in that region require one to be very careful due to their challenging landscape, the eagles and the dangerous reptiles, including snakes.”

The photo of the world’s highest building, the Burj Khalifa, was taken from the highest natural peak in Dubai.

Ahmad said, “My goal for the trip was to photograph the Burj Khalifa.

“The trip was for two days, the filming took half an hour, but the observation took 7 hours. Then we started to descend gradually from the back.”
