Chongqing from Yi Ke Shu Observation

Shot from Yi Ke Shu Observation.

 

The air is bad everyday, lots of pollution, probably the most polluted city I've visited so far. The place is not hard to find, if you trying to get there with taxi, you might have to negotiate the fare before they willing to take you.

    Haha, I live in CQ and this is a VERY good day (I see the sun maybe once a week). Fun factoid, CQ was actually named the capital of China due to it's ghost-like weather properties which hid it from the Japanese. :P

    i heard CQ can have quite clear days in wintertime...
    and actually i already saw some pics with blue sky at panoramio

    You can always get good days, especially after rain and stuff, but it's probably really rare in CQ, Some local said the day already improved in the recent years and that day is one of the better days.

    Hice Shot! Seached for "Chongqing" and visited this one.

    In summer, we get clear and blue sky usually, good time for photography, also bad time for photography because it's always above 40 degree centigrade during these months.

    For other months, it's just cloudy and smoggy, during which we gotta travel to other places for cityscape shots.

    Judging from the visibility in this photo, it is actually one of the better days. Hope this info helps.

    P.S. We are now having very gloomy days. Terrible feelings.
