Taken a few years ago on my Noblex, a local Hong Kong boatman was collecting floating debris in Victoria Harbour. The building half finished in the back lefthand corner of the shot, is the International Commerce Centre. It has 108floors and is 484 m (1,588 ft) tall, the tallest building in Hong Kong. Indeed, when it was completed in 2011, it was the 4th tallest building in the world (now the 11th).
Amazing how quickly the Hong Kong skyline has changed in a relatively short period of time.
This boat has been floating around Victoria harbour for as long as I have been visiting Hong Kong. It was a super grey, inclement day when I took this shot with only a small handful of hardy tourists onboard.
Just prior to the Frankfurt motorshow in September, I went out to Canada for a two week photoshoot. Starting off in Calgary, I headed west to Banff National Park. From here, I drove through all the surrounding national parks including Kootenay, Yoho and Jasper. Over the first ten days, I covered almost 2000 miles.
After returning to Calgary, I then flew further west to Victoria, capital of Vancouver Island. My good friend Justene Miller, a Canadian from Vancouver, gave me some excellent advice, to visit Tofino and Ucluelet, on the Pacific coast of the island. I was treated to a cloud rainbow, something I have never seen before.
I loved Canada, with its spectacular landscape and friendly locals. My only reservation is that the food is much like the US is pretty awful most of the time.
