coast there is nothing like that while we all know that China has some number of fishing boats. I also noticed that regions with shallow water in the picture has lighter color. Since this is a night shot, it can not be natural. The picture is a composite.

After flying over ocean at night, I can tell you that the lights on fishing boats are REALLY bright! in some places, it does actually look like cities. The sharp edges would be to do with exclusive economic zones where one country is making more use of their area than the other country


The tower is incredible, can't wait until it is finished!

Just look again at those photos and you'll know.
I understand now, I thought there was something strange and I didn't care much about that type of photography, thanx for clearing that up cfredo.. And Nordschleife, informotive vid and great pics, especially the pics between the cladding, really get a sence of space and the possibilities of what else they may use it for possible other than skygardens.. Actually a lot more room than I expected.. although looks like it narrows the higher it gets to the next truss.

I'm surprised how dark it is (I suppose after work time). Almost no lights on.

That looked relatively safe compare to ...

The men are required to work at a height of 885ft (270 metres) as they install a crossing tower for a new line of ultra high voltage cable stretching from Anhui province to Shanghai - a distance of 268 miles.
The tower is just one of 1,421 starting west from Huainan. The men have until the end of 2013 to finish the ambitious project

Wow, that's impressive. Btw in the link it says it's equivalent to a 90 storey building, that's a bit too much isn't it?

Yes, I think ST is a bit more massive than BK, with great design

Is there a tread for this? If not some one should start one.
