Here's one of a series of unbelievable aerial photos taken by David Hobcote of the Burj Dubai skyscraper-the world's tallest building, very very close to completion after 4.5 years of construction.

It more or less trumps the world's eight tallest buildings otherwise (just eeking above our work-in-progress Freedom Tower), but does shamelessly employ the 'gratuitous antenna' trick for a few hundred more feet.
