A seat with the Gods: Photograph by Daniel Cheong/ Hotspot Media.

Photograph by Daniel Cheong/ Hotspot Media.

We are grateful to Daniel Cheong for this photograph, apparently taken from the 79th floor of Dubai's Index Tower. It shows the city’s taller towers piercing through a low cloud ceiling, clearing the city of its architectural clutter and choked highways.

Perhaps it is the utopian vision that is so attractive, or maybe that the viewer sits with the gods - a position of ultimate privilege.

Visit the photographer’s website and see how the theme is further developed with a spectacular night shot where the clouds are illuminated from below by the city's night lights.


Gratitude to the Telegraph.
