Hong Kong panorama

I took a picture of Hong Kong from this same vantage point about 25 years ago; there were not nearly as many buildings then, nor were they as high. The above image enlarges to fullscreen, but the original image at Wiki is a much more impressive panorama.

Addendum:  This photo compares a view of Hong Kong from 1964 and recently -

A different focal length on the camera from the top image, but the point is made.

  1. I was told by a resident that the tall building in the center is supposed to represent a bamboo shoot.

    I wish all cities in China were as beautiful as Hong Kong.
