Hong Kong After The Firework Skyline
It’s often when everyone has left and I’m still recording images that I see the most unusual and try to capture it. After fireworks the smoke can often get trapped in the Victoria Harbour area. On this evening by shooting long exposure with the many boats heading back for port it just added another level to the image. I also shot a large panoramic image that had more of the skyline but less obvious was the boats.
Fireworks displays in Hong Kong are legendary, breathtaking shows of pyrotechnics that light up the Hong Kong skyline over beautiful Victoria Harbour. Chinese New Year fireworks are held on the 2nd night of New Year.
Hong Kong Skylines is a breathtaking most of the year but at festive times of the year they turn it up a notch or two. Christmas is celebrated with neon and bright lights as well as some undefinable X-mas decorations that are truly HK unique. Fireworks are part of bringing in the New Year in Hong Kong as with most cities around the world. Chinese New Year has become the most dependable display as the celebrations of China Day, October 1st, in both 2013 and 2014 where both cancelled for very different reasons. Based on trends we can expect the next July 1st firework display to be held in 2017.
