These shots aren’t your average Chinese cityscapes. The city of Qingdao is covered in a thick, clean, mystic mist (or fog, depending on what you want to call it). It was beautifully captured in these colorful panoramic photographs at just the right hour in May of 2012.
It may look like the city known for its exported beer, Tsingtao, is covered in a heavy smog, but what you see here is actually water vapor, not pollution.
I struggled to find the original source, or any information about the photographer or photos. The only thing I could find was this post on the messageboard for a Chinese travelling website, with the pictures originating from a Photobucket album by a user named Lhasaguy. If you recognize the photos and know the source, shoot me a message and I’ll fix it.
