Shot for the Day (21 October 2016)

The dawn of a new day in southern Patagonia.  This shot pf the Moreno Glacier was taken a few years back when I was working and travelling around South America.  I purchased a lovely Fuji GW690 that took no time at all to get the hang of, along with a huge bag of medium format, 120 roll film all around the continent.

This shot was taken a short while before the sun progressed over the mountainous horizon behind me, illuminating the whole Moreno Glacier in a glorious morning, amber light.  Definitely should be a place one’s bucket list to visit and watch sunrise.

At the end of 2014, I travelled up to Hong Kong from Singapore, where the weather was mercifully cooler than the incessant heat of the tropics. That said, I have never found 15 degrees Celsius so cold.

One morning, I took a gander along the path that runs circumnavigates the Peak, taking in views of Aberdeen Bay on one side with Hong Kong downtown and Kowloon Bay beyond on the other.  This shot was taken on Boxing Day.  The smog filtered the early rays of sunshine, dirtying the blue sky with hues of brown and grey.

What struck me most was more based about my Western sensitivities.  Hong Kong had hardly missed a beat even though we were in the middle of the Christmas holidays.  Then again, I do not believe that Hong Kong ever truly sleeps.
