A few years ago, I lived in Wu Kai Sha, a seaside area of Hong Kong. The skies in Hong Kong are quite often hazy, but sometimes you can get spectacular sunrises and sunsets, particularly in the early summer months. When the skies were clear, I would often head down to the nearby beach to catch the sunset and twilight. Here is a visual diary of some of those days. To view the entire photo series, go to Flickr Photo Gallery (98 images): Sky Diary 01: Wu Kai Sha.
1. Views from Ma On Shan Promenade
Just before you get to Wu Kai Sha, there is a long promenade.

3. Starfish Bay
On the other side of a small peninsula is Starfish Bay. When I was living in Wu Kai Sha, my bedroom faced this bay.
I have included some of these photos in one of my music videos. That video also includes shots of village cats, a graffiti wall and Nai Chung Pebble Beach. You can out more about the song here: The Sea Withdrew.
The pictures were taken with a Fujifilm X100T and a Sony Nex-7. I don’t have a long zoom lens, so I wasn’t able to get the sun looking like a huge orange ball. That is one of the reasons, I took most of my photos after the sun had already set.
