Captured this or should I say captured by this sight earlier this week... Have a good day everyone!:-)

Victoria Harbour, Island East, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/680 second F/5.6 ISO 200 41 mm (35mm equiv.)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Luck, that's the word that comes to my mind. Bridge of your luck. Wonderful serendipity here and the tones are so exceptional, soft & silverish blue below that bridge of colors in the light stepping over. Have a nice day too in those high spirits, my dear*

@k@: Heavy rain just a few minutes ago... sun and rain, rain and sun... how wonderful is life!:-)

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Fantastic view enlivened only a little by the rainbow (it would still be fantastic without it.) The light falling on the buildings at the rear is the real highlight of the shot.
Have a great weekend Hugo.

Josep from Barcelona, Spain

Amazing shot!! Superb. The architecture and the city would be beautiful enough to fit on a perfectly composed shot. But the rainbow up there and that bird are two major elements to add to this very nice cityscape. Great work!

It's so infrequent to see a blue sky in HK. what is the best time. I notice, you do your shooting at dusk so the sky, not an issue.

10 Aug 2013 3:42am

@Dave: Oh we do have lovely blue sky during summer!:-)

Kyu from Kyoto, Japan

Wonderful shot. Beautiful Hong Kong's cityscape under the blue sky and the rainbow. I like the perfect harmony of each element. Superb.

The rainbow enriches a panorama which had enough interest on its own. Fine and well composed image.
