Hong Kong No 3: View from the Peak

One-a-day posting No. 3 – View from the Peak. This shot was taken in December 2006 from the Peak looking towards Tsim Sha Tsui. Extraordinary things to note are the massive heights of some of the buildings (in my day the Connaught Centre was the highest building) and the narrowing of the harbour due to reclamation (in my day the Connaught Centre was one the harbour’s-edge).

  1. David Thank you for your one a day feature, that gives me something to look forward to each day! -What’s it going to be today? I think, as I’m crushed against the bus window. The suspense alone gets me through the long commute…

    having said that, I couldn’t open your “view from a peak” this morning. is it a problem at my end?

  2. David… a great picture and from what I hear a rare one these days. Since I left I hear the polution has become more severe. You can see the orange fug over Lei Yi Mun and Junk Bay, but otherwise a very clear shot. Tricky
