Victoria Harbour

Victoria Harbour never sleeps.

First found in sailing charts of 1425, this harbour is a well-known tourist spot. Often seen from Victoria Peak above the city, these pictures are taken from the deck of the Pacific Princess at the dock near Harbour city on March 2, 2017.

All of the pictures above were taken with a cell phone. The iPhone 7+ does quite well in these lighting conditions. These were all taken just after sunset, about 6:45 PM.

All of the pictures below were taken with a Canon T4i with a Sigma 18-200 zoom lens. They were taken later, after dinner, about 8:30 PM.

One last picture, zoomed out to show the moon, watching over Hong Kong and giving an indication of how big the city is.
