A Symphony of Light

Posted by

The Christmas Lights in Hong Kong - particularly what you can see from Tsim Sha Tsui - are world famous. Almost every building in view is illuminated in the festive theme! So I thought I'd head down to see them at about the same time as when the daily 'Symphony of Light' laser light show started.
I nearly missed it as I arrived with minutes to spare, trying out a new (Benro) tripod for the first time (I should have made time to test it first), and it was spitting with rain - but luckily I managed to quickly capture a few shots.

Canon EOS 60D 5/2 seconds F/7.1 ISO 100 20 mm

An amazing skyline. Very different from Kyoto that's for sure.

A little late from me, but Happy New Year. Looks like you had quite the time while you were gone. Glad to see you back posting, and I look forward to more from your travels.
