I love how the clouds look so enormous, making the buildings look small, even though they obviously are not. Very nice sweeping view of the city and bend in the river.

Wonderful view KK. Despite the plethora of skyscrapers, the immensity of the clouds dwarf them. Impressive.
Make your life spectacular!

That sounds way too hot for me, especially with your humidity, KK!  A wonderful perspective for this view over your amazing homeland, I would love to see more if you have them.  :) 

I hope you and your family are staying safe and well.

You have a fine variety of wonderful architecture, that is some skyline!  I feel like I have learned a little bit more.  :) 

Staying out of politics is a very sensible philosophy, my friend.

Very nice. One of very few images I've seen of that city that give some idea of the lay of the land.
A great photograph is absorbed by the eyes and stored in the heart.
