Zohaib Anjum, a photographer, also managed to capture a shot of the lightning striking the Burj Khalifa. He spent 7 years trying to get the perfect shot, spending several nights camping outside when rains hit Dubai.

“It was just as though God had planned this moment, the lightning hitting the iconic Burj Khalifa to kick-start my 2020,” he said.
