Great shot from an unusual angle!

Fascinating to see the pockmarked ground from wartime bombing where the future Hong Kong Sheraton hotel would be. Can also see a glimpse of Chungking Arcade bottom right. 

Inside Victoria Harbour, near the Naval Dockyards, the masts and superstructural parts of a sunken ship can be spotted.
