Chongqing

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 12 March 2019 in Cityscape & Urban.

Chongqing, with a population of 30 million people, is one of the largest cities in the world. With more than 50 bridges, it is also called a "Bridge capital of China". On this photo there is a bridge called "Qianximen Bridge" over Jialing River.
Remarkable is the green building on the other side of the river, which took my attention here in the first place and triggered that shot, which is impulsively made through the window of the moving bus. Now I know, that this is the Chongqing Grand Theatre - a local answer to Sydney Opera House, completed in 2009.

30 miljoni elanikuga Chongqing on üks maailma suurimaid linnu. Rohkem kui 50 sillaga linna kutsutakse ka "Hiina sildade pealinnaks". Pildil oleva Jialingi jõge ületava silla nimeks on "Qianximen".
Liikuva bussi aknast impulsiivselt pilti tegema pani aga hoopiski põnev roheline ehitis teisel pool jõge. Nüüdseks ma tean, et tegemist on Suure Teatri hoonega, mis valmis 2009. aastal kohaliku vastusena Sidney ooperimajale.

A superb image especially from the bus. Love that bridge but the green building is no match for the Sydney Opera House in terms of looks anyway. ;-)

@Steve Rice: From that distance, the building looks like a tank from I WW to me, too... :)

Great composition "on the run"! Excellent clarity and sharpness for this kind of photo and having just done the same recently in China, I know the difficulty involved.
