TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- An American-Canadian marketing manager took this photo of eerily clear air over the Taipei skyline on Aug. 25, the night of Ghost Festival. 

The photographer, 29-year-old Adam Woolhether (吳亞當), who works as a global marketing manager for AsiaYo.com, captured the image in Taipei's Xinyi District during the evening of Ghost Festival (鬼節). The Ghost Festival is observed on the 15th day of the 7th month of the lunisolar calendar, the halfway mark of Ghost Month (鬼月). 

Woolhether says that he has lived in Taiwan for about a year and a half and plans to stay in Taiwan for many years. When it comes to taking photos in Taiwan, he said, "It's always a pleasure to capture Taiwan's beauty and share it with the world."
