Dubai Piercing Through Blanket of Fog

These’re incredible photographs taken from high above the Dubai skyscrapers shows the city’s tallest buildings playing peek-a-boo in the clouds. The skillful photographer Daniel Cheong’s dramatic day and night scenes offer a bird’s eye view of the gleaming metropolis in the UAE. He takes brilliant shots of fog engulfed tallest towers floating in the sky. 

His surreal work depicts the real desert city from three vantage points, the lowest being 73 floors high. He selected three world’s tallest tower, Burj-e-Khalifa 99th Floor, the Index Tower 80th Floor, and Cayan Tower 73rd Floor. The 52 years old keen snapper takes more than 300 photographs of thecity during a six year period, and in that time he has also visited over 25 rooftops to photograph Dubai's splendor. He likes to be called as a “rooftopper”. 

The Mauritius born photographer is a project manager for Microsoft, said; Dubai is the appealing when it is shot from the highest vantage points. Dubai is a fantastic city for photographing; particularly very futuristic when it comes to fog engulfed the high rises buildings. I just love the photography and it is my hobby and I do it very passionately. I’ll keep chasing fog in Dubai and I always look something different here.
