Across two cities redux

The same view of the Ortigas Center skyline from the top floor of Fully Booked in Bonifacio High Street as the photo I posted two weeks ago, but at night. The huge cloud looming over the city had dispersed by then.

It looks so strange at night, and the faint remaining clouds still capture some light for an intersting effect.

The composition places into proper perspective the magnificence of the sky and the small scale in comparison of the largest structures of man.

Wonderful and eerie sky over the cityscape. It does give some perspective to us city dwellers, doesn't it.
