Al-Hamra tower kuwait

On march 07, 2014, i had one more chance to visit to the tallest tower in kuwait.
See my 1st, 2nd & 3rd visit to al hamra tower

About al hamra tower:
At a height of 414 meters, in the heart of Kuwait City, Al Hamra Tower breaks all records, at this height. Al Hamra enjoys the recognition of being amongst the ten highest skyscrapers in the world, and it’s innovative design places Kuwait on the map as a center for business and creativity.
The vision is to create a center of excellence, integrating every available resource with state-of-the-art technology, creativity and originality! No efforts will be spared to turn the vision into reality.

 Al Hamra is the new landmark with its iconic tower heralding a new era of development and prosperity in Kuwait.
Like an enshrouded figure with its delicate glass veil, the apex of the Tower with carved flared walls depicts a continuation of the sculptural form infinitely upwards. The results reveal a rich, monolithic stone at the south wall framed by graceful, twisting ribbons of torque walls, which define the iconic form of the Tower.

 One of the tallest towers in the world, and indeed, by far the tallest sculpted tower, Al Hamra is in a class of its own, visible from miles around, and for those in the tower itself, providing spectacular views over much of Kuwait and across the Arabian Gulf. (info from hamra official website)

This time i was really happy because i got permission to visit the top floor deck (74th floor). the view from there is amazing.. we can actually can see the whole kuwait in a clear weather.

Unfortunately, the day i went, it was a hazy day so i did not get good view of the whole kuwait. However, I am very thankful for having a breath taking experience overlooking Kuwait. I wish i could spend a full day shooting kuwait landscapes in different  timeframes..

Because of security reasons, we are not allowed to stay for long and they have asked us to finish shooting in an hour.
thank you so much my dear friend and the authorities  for letting me have a breattaking experience.
