Hazy Hong Kong Day

So I’m sitting at home yesterday wondering what to do with myself.  I look out the window and see clear blue skies and I figure, great!, grab the gear and head up to Fei Ngo Shan.  That’s one of the few mountains in HK where one can drive to the top, there’s a great harbor view from there and it’s just 20 minutes from my home.

What I didn’t count on is that I live in Hong Kong’s New Territories, separated from Kowloon by a ring of mountains and that on the other side of those mountains it would be nothing but dismally grey.  Here’s a shot that’s straight out of the camera, nothing done to it except to convert to JPG and resize it.

I was there, right?  So I set up the tripod and camera and took some shots – practice if nothing else – and hoped that if I waited long enough things might clear up.  But the clouds weren’t moving at all and after an hour I was seriously sweating so I gave up.  Anyway, here’s a few shots from the day.

In the photo above, you can see construction well under way for Hong Kong’s new cruise ship terminal.  Here’s a closer view:

A couple of mountain top installations.

I think this one has a dreamy quality to it:

I’ll be back there again.
