Russian photographer Vadim Makhorov loves to view the world from an extremely high vantage point.

Traveling the globe with his thrill-seeking comrades, Makhorov photographs cities from their highest, most unusual and hard-to-reach places. The team stopped in Dubai to capture one of the worlds most luxurious and expensive cities from above.

“Most of all, we were interested in Dubai's roofs and the views from them," Makhorov documented on his blog. "Climbing on the roofs abroad isn’t like climbing in Russia.”

Makhorov and his team scaled the rooftops of Dubai’s tallest buildings in order to immortalize the city's lavish beauty, contemporary architecture and complicated maze of streets. Take a look at their journey:
