Clear night from the Peak

Last photo for a bit. Hong Kong in winter is generally free from the smog and pollution that plagues it for much of the rest of the year.
Locals say quietly that technologically orientated Hong Kong is not really responsible for much of the pollution. True, it does have a lot of cars but as an island should be able to clear this quite easily. The real cause is the dirty industry in the Pearl River delta in mainland China. The pollution crosses Hong Kong on the way out to sea. However this is not politically adviseable to repeat too often.

Still, in winter, there is not too much pollution from any source. This allows some great views of the city in day and night.
