Well…this is NOT Hong Kong….but this point of view reminded me some images I’ve seen of Hong Kong. As you can see, a heavy fog that advanced from the Mediterranean sea into Tel Aviv – covered the city. Low clouds and heavy fog covering the city might be a regular scene in San Francisco, but it is very unusual to have such a scene in Israel. Fog is a rare phenomena in Israel and especially in Tel Aviv, as the city resides on the Mediterranean sea.
Its not New York or Hong Kong, but with this image you can get some impression of the architecture of the Tel Aviv with its few towers and skyscrapers. These low clouds surrounded the major Reading power station in Tel Aviv, and advanced to the sport arena in the middle and the city new towers in the front of this image. The heavy fog started suddenly on a Thursday afternoon, where people working in the city skyscrapers observed huge low clouds coming from the sea, probably from Cyprus and slowly advancing into the city. For some people this was a shocking scene that was seen only in movies like “the day after“. The fog stayed all night across the shoreline and refused to go anywhere. In the next three days there was no wind, so these low clouds didn’t go anywhere.
