The World Below

From the very top of the 988-foot-tall Haeundae Doosan We’ve the Zenith building in Busan, South Korea, the view of the city lights below is dizzying—and peaceful. “Not for the faint of heart,” writes Your Shot photographer Albert Dros, who received official permission and took proper safety measures to make this image (which required hanging off the edge of the building). “But when you're at a height like this, the world below you just seems a different world. It takes away the fear one would normally have, and gives a sense of peace instead.”
