Crown Prince of Dubai Captures His City Above The Clouds, And It Will Take Your Breath Away

Dubai’s Crown Prince Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum (often known as Fazza) might be one of the richest men in the world, but this stunning footage he’s taken of the Dubai skyline rising through the clouds is absolutely priceless.

He recently shared his spectacular sunrise view with his 4.4 million followers, and the video has already been viewed almost 1 million times. It was taken from the top of one of the city’s many dizzying skyscrapers, and the world’s tallest building – the Burj Khalifa – can clearly be seen emerging from the mist like something from a sci-fi movie. The Crown Prince took the footage after mist and fog descended on the United Arab Emirates last week, which disrupted a number of flights. With views like this though, who cares.

The shot of him using his phone hints that he didn't film those himself. More likely that he hired someone to do it and went along.

It seems to me he used the phone as a remote for the DSLR
