It was so crazy to see the photos and videos of this hotel burning during the New years. I can’t even imagine how it had to look to those who were on the spot. It was so good to see that none of my friends that were there (and nobody else there) god badly hurt. Good to see that the architects of these huge building thought of such situations and a fire does not end in tragedy. I’m quite curious what will now happen with the hotel, if it can be repaired, or they will have to demolish it. Time will tell.

This is a photo taken in 2014 from the top of the Burj Khalifa. This is a HDR from 4 exposures, combined in Photoengine, finished in Photoshop.
