Photographer's Note

A night cruise along the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers was a bit of a treat on this last visit to Chongqing.

This image is taken beyond the mass of high rise buildings on the headland where the two rivers meet - but then high rise buildings are springing up one a day all over the greater city. Mostly residential.

This office building stands tall over one of the monorail stations that hug the river cliffs........a monorail 'tour' at night is another treat (interesting to get off at random stations) - as is travelling on one of the two cable cars that cross the two rivers.

This was quite a difficult one to achieve any degree of sharpness and I had to work at it because of the almost absence of any good light source ...and I was on a moving boat!

My gallery of images from A Portrait of Chongqing May 2007 exists here.

Chongqing means 'Double Happiness'
