On a bad day

Looking through old pictures, I’ve come across this particularly gloomy one:


Google Photos locates this lovely view in Copenhagen. Yes, Copenhagen can be dark and depressive in the winter as well as in the late fall and early spring. But I believe it’s another city in Europe.

Google Lens says it might be Hefei (in China) or Magnitogorsk (in Russia, in the South Urals). Neither, of course. I’m pretty sure it’s a view of Zurich near the Oerlikon station from one of the adjacent high-rises. On a dark morning of one of those days in-between seasons.
