Two Russian climbers, Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov, who have gained a reputation as fearless photographers after climbing some of the world’s tallest buildings are at it again–this time taking on the tallest building in China, the Shanghai Tower, which is currently under construction. The Shanghai Tower measures in at 2,073 feet (632 meters) tall, making it the second tallest building in the world behind Dubai’s Burj Khalifa:

With a glowing full moon behind it, this photograph of the Space Needle—captured by Hai Nguyen—retains that futuristic feel even 50+ years later.
