Whenever visitors come, we always take them up to Victoria Peak. The views of the harbor are stunning – definitely one of the great city views in the world. Sometimes, I go up by myself as well with the intention of taking some evening photos. This time I got up nice and early, about an hour before sunset. I was shooting with the Sony A6000 and the Sony 10-18 lens (this is a real gem). The first photo below is an exposure blend of 3 photos taken before the city lights came on.
The best photos are ofcourse when the city lights come on. The trick is to not keep it for too late – take the shots when there is still some blue in the sky. The shot below is again an exposure blend of 3 photos.
The feature image of this post, was a single shot taken as a 25 second exposure. I normally don’t do such long exposures here. But this time, there was some very nice movement in the clouds that I wanted to emphasize.
