Hong Kong - Tsing Ma and Ting Kau bridges

The 2 largest bridges of Hong Kong at night. Tsing Ma bridge (the largest) in the foreground. Unfortunately the lights are switched on too late (19:00) for a nice blue hour shot (in late September).

 

Not quite visible in the shot is the structural difference: The Tsing Ma Bridge is a suspension bridge, while the Ting Kau Bridge is a cable stayed bridge.

 

Shot from Ma Wan - nowadays aka Park Island.

And here the other view - Ting Kau bridge in the middle ground (better light as well...).
