On July 3rd, I had a lunch time meeting in Causeway Bay and returned home in the late afternoon. The skies were amazingly clear in Causeway Bay and even though I was tired, “duty called” and I went back to Fei Ngo Shan (aka Kowloon Peak), getting there around 6 PM. The sun had started going down and the light was just horrible on HK island – just completely flat and lifeless. But I was already there and thought I should stick around for what some call the “golden hour” – as day turns into night. Sure enough, as the sun went down, the light drastically improved. I wanted to stay for the nightly Festival of Lights but I had to get home in time for a phone call for a job interview. I felt kind of goofy having to leave before the “main event” (or so I thought) but resolved to get back there again while the skies were still clear.
Here’s one shot from the 3rd:
