through the clouds

The Burj Khalifa, in Dubai, stabbing through the clouds as it reaches its half-mile height. Those "small" buildings around it's base? They're in the range of 30 to 60 stories, more than enough to be skyscrapers in most other cities, even here in San Francisco. The scale of this building is almost impossible to comprehend, whether it be in person or through the lens.
