Tai Mo Shan makes another appearance, at the left end of this panorama. Then you see the upper Shing Mun reservoir, and at the right is the lower reservoir. This photo was taken from one section of HK's wartime defenses, described in more detail here.

Lamma

Lamma

In July 2003, we had a couple of weeks of beautiful clear weather, which meant fantastic views out over the South China Sea. This is taken from the Western end of the island, looking South towards Lamma Island. If you're walking on the flat road around the peak, half way around you'll come to a small park and a paved road sloping off to the left - this is the view from the end of that road. At the time we took this photo Mrs B was just getting ready deliver our baby B. We'd ended up here after walking around the Peak, passing time until we could head off to the hospital.
