View From The Peak

There are many beautiful landscapes around Hong Kong. The first introductory landscape view of Hong Kong is best to be captured from The Peak, which is a tourist hot spot. It is a great location for night photography of the city skyline but you have to find a good spot and park yourself right in front of the observation tower. Everyone wants a good shot of the cityscape from day to night. What I am going to show you here is nothing unusual. It is one of the most photographed angles which you can find when you search for “Hong Kong”.  The only reason I am taking these photos, at almost the same angles on every visit, is to make a comparison of developments over the years. The city is expanding rapidly, congested with high rise. How congested can it get? Let’s see the comparison in my next blog when I get enough to compare.

Fujifilm XE-2 never fail to impress with low lighting shots. This was shot without a tripod. I was not planning to stay until this late. ISO was at 500 ---- Fujifilm XE-2, 18mm, 1/15 sec, f/4.5, ISO 500.
