Cross Harbour Tunnel

A scene from my life -- almost 11 pm last night on a double decker bus, on my way home after seeing a theatre performance. This is the Kowloon entrance to the Cross Harbour Tunnel, an 1.8 km underwater tunnel linking the HK island and Kowloon peninsula. Instead of the underground, I always prefer crossing the harbour by ferry or tunnel bus.

Reminds me of my NYC days - long past! I would NOT like to be in that traffic nowadays!

I think that I'd get claustrophobia in there. Thanks for sharing a slice of your life!

I love photographs that show movement in this way. What a great shot. I can remember crossing the harbour by ferry which was a great experience. It was quite a few years ago now!

Lisi, thank you for all the lovely comments you have posted on Réal DP. You are a winner.

What I'm wondering is how they build an underwater tunnel. That would be interesting to watch.

lots of vehicles at that hour? oh, city life. Akita? the place is already asleep by that time.

Hi all, thank you for dropping by...
It's not easy to take night shot on top of a moving bus but hey and I only got this one which is marginally "postable" ;-)

Luggi, what store?

I am quite impressed by the clarity of the photo given youre on a moving bus - how long did the ride take? I am surprised so many people are out at this time - we would not have so much traffic at 11 PM unless there was a major major construction or something which still would not have as much cars - that must have been quite a performance hehe

I'd like to experience riding in an underground tunnel
