Glowing spires

Best viewed large on black.

 

Nighttime shot of Hong Kong Island and Tsim Sha Tsui from the Victoria Peak.

 

This was a difficult shot to take, especially since I did not have a tripod with me. The best vantage point was the edge of the Peak Tower viewing platform, but the wide guardrail there was sloping, not flat. I had to balance the camera on a bag set on that rail, support the bag with one arm without touching the camera (or breathing much) and trigger the shutter via remote control with the other. I took about 30 shots at various shutter speeds and focal lengths, but this is the one I am most happy with.

 

This is photo #150 in my Project 365 series.
