HONG KONG [44] Clear Skies Over Asia's World City

[size=3] I thought it was weird when I woke up that morning and saw the mountains outside my window and there was no yellowish haze. Sure enough, it was a clear day in Hong Kong! I turned on the TV to check the skyline cameras on the morning news and the harbour was clear!

I jumped into action and rushed to the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront for some photo-taking.

More photos in my new Hong Kong Skyline section at : http://www.geocities.com/asiaglobe/g...hk-skyline.htm

Accompanying Music : http://portalmp3.zhongsou.com/md?id=...743498e229.wma





The new police headquarters now stands tall on the left.





The Avenue of Stars celebrates Hong Kong's film industry.





2 IFC looks really big because it is the closest skyscraper to Kowloon.





AIG also looks big from this angle.



Clear skies!



Imagine cruising into Hong Kong harbour that morning.



I took a cruise myself .. on the Star Ferry.





Taking a picture of the skyline :





I went behind Ocean Terminal to see Union Square under construction :



Central Plaza close-up





Can you see the new skyscrapers?





Until the next thread!

There were a lot of clear skies during the month but most of them were smoggy.
