Level 8 Typhoon

Just a quick update today, pretty much everything has ground to a halt in Hong Kong today as the Level 8 typhoon warning has been hoisted! Order of the day is stay at home and listen to the pounding rain.

The Peak

Top of almost all tourist’s lists when they visit Hong Kong is the famous Victoria Peak, which gives amazing views out over the city. It certainly didn’t disappoint, it’s somewhere I’m definitely going to have to revisit with my 5D and a tripod, I’ve so far only been venturing with my EOS-M. Few of my ugly mug too in here.

 

Stormy day, Star Ferries and Peaceful Evenings.

Took my first trip on the famous Star Ferry today over to Kowloon, and promptly got extremely wet! It’s incredible how the buildings disappear in the clouds when the weather turns inclement. All had cleared up by the evening, as can be seen by the incredibly tranquil night images! Things change so quickly.

 

Hong Kong

We have landed in Hong Kong! All checked into our hotel, which is home for a few days until our apartment is ready. Been for a quick wander and so far amazed with everything! Very warm, humid and busy, but also everything is jaw dropping, even just around Wan Chai!
