Fantastic shots Langur, really nice to see the city from that different angle, plus the clouds rolling over the mountains behind are amazing. Good work!

I'm so happy for you and your amazing lungs.. but why post such trollish shit on a thread about HK's tallest builidng. No offence, but go away you random yokel. Go to Sai Kung National Park half an hour from central HK and it'll blow your pic out the water. Bye bye

The idiot (TuzlaBoy) posted the exact same thing in the Burj Dubai thread, so is nothing but a TROLL. Best thing to do is just ignore him, i'm sure he'll be warned and or banned by the mods sooner or later.

Doesn't bother me at all, just think that the boloni smoker doesn't deserve the attention he is recieving, which is what he so obviously craves. It just floods the thread with off topic nonsense that i'm adding to, lol, pot, kettle, black.

Nice pic by the way, i've always thought the mountains that surround HK look amazing and help make the city look one of the most spectacular on the planet, would like to visit one day.

Ha, sensible I suppose, had a few drinks and that idiot's post just annoyed me.. pot, kettle, black indeed . Seriously though, try and go however you can, it really is utterly increadible. As a lover of skyscrapers and general urbanity it really is utterly unsurpassed (apart from perhaps NYC).. the view of the skyline from Kowloon is truly mind-boggling. However as you say, the mountains, jungles, mutlitude of islands and overall sub tropical climate make it truly something to behold and imo give the city an unrivalled status against all others. Rio is the only other metropolis whose natural physical landscape rivals HK's, but the built city itself does not compare.
Severely off topic I know, my appologies to all!
