Hong Kong Night Skyline, Hong Kong by ValterAndersson

Victoria Peak (Chinese: 太平山, or previously Chinese: 扯旗山) is a mountain in the western half of Hong Kong Island. It is also known as Mount Austin, and locally as The Peak. With an altitude of 552 m (1,811 ft), it is the highest mountain on Hong Kong island, ranked 31 in terms of altitude in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (Tai Mo Shan is the highest point in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region with an altitude of 957 m).

The summit is occupied by a radio telecommunications facility and is closed to the public. However, the surrounding area of public parks and high-value residential land is the area that is normally meant by the name The Peak. It is a major tourist attraction that offers views over Central, Victoria Harbour, Lamma Island and the surrounding islands.

Mirror, Mirror …. by 1davidmcmahon

The Singapore ArtScience Museum is reflected – albeit inverted by 180 degrees – in the Sky Mirror by Turner Award-winning artist Anish Kapoor. After a wait of several weeks for an unblemished blue sky, I finally got the weather I wanted for this shot in August. The Sky Mirror was installed at Marina Bay in 2014.
