The first time I saw the lights at the Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong I fell in love with it... so bright... so colorful... so panoramic... and photogenic.
From Wikipedia:
Victoria Harbour is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula in Hong Kong. The harbour's deep, sheltered waters and strategic location on the South China Sea were instrumental in Hong Kong's establishment as a British colony and its subsequent development as a trading centre.
The Victoria Harbour is world-famous for its stunning panoramic night view and skyline, particularly in the direction towards Hong Kong Island where the skyline of skyscrapers is superimposed over the ridges behind. Among the best places to view the Harbour is at the Peak Tower on the Victoria Peak, or from the piazza at the Culture Centre or the promenade of Tsim Sha Tsui on the Kowloon side. Rides on the Star Ferry to view the harbour are also widely popular.
As the natural centre of the territory, the harbour has played host to many major public shows, including the annual fireworks displays on the second night of the Lunar New Year. These shows are popular with tourists and locals alike, and the show is usually telecast on local television. To add to the popularity of the harbour as a sightseeing location, the government introduced a show dubbed A Symphony of Lights

Last May 2011, we rode the ferry from Wanchai to Tsimshatsui and along the way, I was just amazed by the spectacular harbor.

This time, I brought with me my Nikon D90 DSLR and also without tripod.
Now, that I am looking at my pictures, they are so saturated, although, I did not post-process them. Also clouds and details are better defined.

Here are more scenes from the Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong.

Then, we walked around Tsimshatsui and stopped by the Harbor City area.

Then, we walked around Tsimshatsui and further to the Avenue of the Stars.

It is a beautiful night in a beautiful place...the Victoria Harbor in HongKong!
