On the morning of 2 December 2016 I was invited to a remarkable event, to watch the sunrise from At the Top of Burj Khalifa. The early morning entry to the observations decks on Level 124 and 125 to watch the winter sunrise from the world’s tallest building is something that I recommend to anyone who is up for a lifetime experience.

This indeed was the earliest event that I have ever attended, but by far it was worth the early morning wake up. At 05:30 am I made my way up to the At the Top of Burj Khalifa. I have recently visited the landmark which you can read about here, however this time it was a completely different feeling.

It was still dark and the to my surprise the place was packed with visitors and even families with young children who were excited to welcome the sun.

The area was only open to media and turned into a creative playground for photographers. The lighting, the shadows and the overall ambiance created a fantastic setting for creative photography.

Watching the city wake up, the sky change colour and the details of this grand city from above, was beyond what words can describe. This is that kind of moment where you stop, feel and reflect. Moments like these make you feel grateful and alive.
