The image above was made from one of the most famous viewpoints in Shanghai, "The Bund". Carrying my sturdy Gitzo tripod on the trip proved worthwhile! Even though a bit more clouds would have made it even more worthwhile...
It was unfortunate that the Oriental Pearl tower (highest on the left) for some strange reason was not lit while I was there... Another reason to go back, I guess.
