Weekly Photo Challenge – From Above

I’m a big fan of a view from above. It puts everything in perspective and let’s you see the full picture.

View from 124th floor Burj Kalifa

The view from the 124th floor of the Burj Kalifa in Dubai is something else. All urban, city and man made.

The view from above in a moving object- a small plane in central Ontario, Canada. An adrenaline rush. All rural.

Auschwitz 2 - Berkenau from the Main Gate by marktravel

The view from above the main gate at Auschwitz 2-Berkineau in Poland. Over 1 million people entered this death camp and never came out. Numbing. Perspective is everything.

    Incredible set of images. From the view over Dubai to the view above the main gate at Auschwitz. You’ve opened my eyes and given me food for thought, today. Thank you so much. Michele

    Wow, Mark. This is a great post. These photos are really gorgeous (and the last one is very moving). I’ve been entering (but not successfully winning!) a “photoroulette” contest by another group of travel bloggers and every contest has a different theme. This would be an awesome contest theme. Happy travels and see you at TBEX! Jill

    We have a similar photo from the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. I love how clear yours is though. We visited on a very windy, dusty day!

      We were fortunate with the lack of wind on that day. Thanks for the comment.
