My last evening in Hong Kong, I spent on Victoria peak, one of the surrounding mountains of the city. 3 hours before sunset, I took off by bus from the famous Star Ferry near the central harbour. I knew, I had only one chance to capture it, and the entire day I couldn't see any clouds on the sky.
At first, I arrived at the bus station and was surprised, how little people were on the "viewing platform" until I realised that this platform was heading into the other direction. Upstairs, on the other side of the building, you could enjoy the view over the city. Quickly I realised though that this building and tourist spot I was dropped at was not the spot I wanted to shoot at, since the view towards the harbour was completely blocked.
So I checked the hiking route around The Peak. After a short walk, my breath was taken away by this stunning view! Immediately, I set up my tripod at the perfect spot, until a few minutes later other photographers arrived to reserve their spot.
That was exactly why I came extra early. It was not even boring to watch the day end and spending in summary 3 hours on Victoria Peak. I will not forget this view!
