Joe McMally On Top Of The Highest Building in the World
Remember the scene in Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol, where Tom Cruise climbs the tower in Dubai? Not quite as high tech - but real and much(!) higher up - Joe had the chance during this year's Golf Photo Plus to climb and photograph the (currently) highest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa .
Gaining access to the top of the Burj Khalifa is no easy matter. From what I hear and read, many loop holes have to be taken and one need's the blessing of the Prime Minster of Dubai as well as a security clearance which can take upwards of 3 years.
Thanks, Joe, for the Behind-The-Scenes video:
