Photos of the day: Southern Shandong Peninsula, Liaoning's home

Here is a glimpse into North Sea Fleet's HQ on the southern side of the Shandong Peninsula, also home to the aircraft carrier Liaoning.   While much has been written about PLAN's new boats, shipbuilding capacity and all those fancy new toys equipping them, detailed studies on their new naval port facilities and other logistics-related services are not as widely available. 

Those facilities surely look impressive from above with breakwater that extends well into the sea; the hills across the road from the port is by no doubt ordnance depots and store-houses in a massive scale.  Also check out all those sport venues, looks like a nice vacation spot for the entire family from this angle.
