Only the tops of the tallest skyscrapers inShanghai were visible to the naked eye yesterday after a thick fog descended onthe city and blanketed the majority of its buildings.
A photographer captured some incredibleaerial images of the global financial hub, situated on the east coast of China,being suffocated by the weather.
The shots of the Pudong skyscrapers showedjust half of the Shanghai Tower, the tallest building in the country, whichstands at more than 2,000 feet.
Even less of the 1,614 feet World Financial Center was on view and most of the88-floor Jinmao Tower was hidden by the fog.
Other images captured the antenna spire ofthe Oriental Pearl Tower, which stands at 1,535 feet and was the venue of theChinese Live Earth concert in 2007.
