The Winner's Photo

Viewing towards northeast, the photograph (below) captures the approach of a cold front from the north towards the airport at around 7:54 a.m., 4 May 2004. The wall-shaped, rain-bearing clouds associated with the cold front on the left-hand side of the photo are in sharp contrast with the rain-free area to the right. The picture, taken by Mr. C.H. Chow, a weather observer at the Hong Kong International Airport, won the championship of a photo competition in the Observatory recently.
