I just love cities at night – and Shanghai has one key feature that is unparalleled anywhere else on earth: The illuminated elevated freeways.
Running through the middle of the city, heading north and south, not only are they a practical way of shifting traffic away from ground level, they also make a stunning image when captured from above.
High up and looking over the city, it can sometimes be a challenge to work out exactly what direction you want to look and capture the feel of what’s before you. In this image, I wanted to mix the architecture of the downtown skyscrapers with the main intersection of the traffic network – the “Nine Dragons Interchange”. This is where North meets South, and East meets West, and really is the heartbeat of the city during rush-hour.
Surrounded by the lush greenery of Peoples Square, it’s sometimes easy to forget you’re in a city when you’re down there. From up here, however, it’s impossible not to notice.
