    A glass cleaner at 124th level of the highest building in the world - Burj Khalifa. Photo taken during the winter season when low lying clouds appear and the most awaited season of photographers here in United Arab Emirates.

    EPIC - In a less epic way, this frame reminds me of a children's story I remember called Jack and the Beanstalk (check it out). What I particularly love about this picture is the simplicity of the composition, the soft pastel lighting and the fact that the workman is already a long way up above the cloud, meaning that they must be a very very long way above the floor! Great shot. Reminds me of my days 'on the ropes' back in London, Leeds and Manchester, England.
