Hong Kong Fog
Hong Kong Fog is something that is not only an out of the blue occurrence as it’s high unpredictable. It’s also very challenging as one gets a vantage point that captures this stunning visual. In the spring and fall it can happen at any time especially with temperature changes. The mountains, surrounding waters, varying air temps as well as skyscrapers all play a role. The Peak above Hong Kong City center is one of the best locations if conditions are just right. Hong Kong fog is simply something that turns an awe inspiring location into something out of a sci-fi dreamscape. These images are a once in a life time capture that will be hard to match.
SPECIAL NOTE:This to date had to be the most incredible weather event I’ve ever witnessed and experienced. From crystal clear skies at 4am in the morning with twinkling stars like I’ve never experienced in Hong Kong before. It was a balmy 26c when I awoke. By the time the whole mind-blowing show of colours and dancing clouds the temps had dropped to 14c.
Shots like this ones are once in a lifetime experience and many people never really understand what they are actually witnessing. Time-lapse opened my mind to the natural phenomenon that happens out of the blue in the spring but on a rare occasion it will occur in the fall if rapid temperature drops happen.
Coastal fog is usually a result of advection fog which forms when relatively warm, moist air passes over a cool surface, As the cool water condenses into the warmer atmosphere, fog forms over the ocean and the winds transport it over Hong Kong.
The mountains around Hong Kong trap the fog. The marine layer is different. That is formed when a layer of cool coastal air is trapped beneath a layer of warm, drier air. The warm, dry air causes evaporation of the ocean surface. The moist air is then trapped within the layer of cool coastal air. Hong Kong with over 230 Islands and all with peaks of different heights as well as volatile air temperatures can do some amazing visual effects.
