Sunset Peak startrail
These cottages have a long history, just like the stars above our head. It is the third highest peak in Hong Kong. The stone cottages inside the photo were once built by the British and other westerners for their summer vacation use and now they become wind shelters for campers and photographers. Moreover, these stone cottages are surrounded by the golden silver grass during autumn, making this place unique and no ordinary compare to other places. Alongside the peak covered with silver grass, the sky above is also tantalizing as you can see the Milky Way and stars, inside a highly light polluted and crowded city.
