Travel photographer Exithamster visited Quarry Bay, Hong Kong in January 2017 and was awe-struck by the huge structures.
He said: "As Hong Kong is very crowded during daytime a friend of mine told me to head to Quarry Bay to have a bit of a more laid back atmosphere and photo possibilities.
"The next day I found myself in a courtyard of a massive residential complex - each apartment differently painted and with its own A/C box fixed on almost every window.
"I was so impressed that I ended up visiting 5 times during my 8 days in Hong Kong. Usually when you do city sightseeing everything above you stays unexplored. That time my neck started to hurt!”
With a population of over 7 million people many of Hong Kong’s high rises are residental apartment blocks.
Exithamster said: "As I am never travelling with a tripod it was a bit tricky to take these shots because you always need to find a flat spot on the ground.
"That way the display on my camera will be hidden so practically you end up taking 30-40 shots until you got the one which is right.”
