Amazing Cityscape Views from the Rooftops of Dubai


Photographer Karim Nafatni gives new energy to the glowing lights of bustling Dubai in his stunning series of cityscapes, simply called Rooftop Photography. As we have seen before, the Dubai-based photographer and major airline pilot is certainly not afraid of heights! In his ongoing series, Nafatni climbs to the tops of the tallest skyscrapers he can find—some as high as 1,000 feet above the ground— to capture the incredibly vivid, bustling world far below.

By escaping high above the busy city environment, Nafatni provides his viewers with a moment to reflect upon the complexity and inherent beauty of modern and innovative urban architecture. “Most of the time I do let my emotions and feelings guide me and let the shot come to me rather then pushing for it to happen,” says Nafatni.
