Old village about a km in from Mui Wo on Lantau Island ,Hong Kong. Just finished a hike from the other side of the island that included going over a couple peaks, the last of which being the one in the background in the clouds.

Hong Kong is much more than a bustling city, but rather a country diverse in lifestyles, landscapes and everything else imaginable.

I really like this, Tim. Perhaps the whole thing could be tilted clockwise slightly, but even so, I really like the different areas of (dare I say it?) textures throughout the image: plants, buildings, clouds.

Love that forground vegetation!! Super variation in content and Chris is right about the textures! Love it. (Yep - needs a slight tilt.) Viv

Thanks Chris & Viv! I'll fix that tilt tonight or tomorrow. This stuff looks great but is a complete pain to walk through, especially when you're wearing shorts and the plants beneath these have razor-sharp thorns and leaves! -- Tim

I also love the textures and the foreground leaves.
Your work reminds of the so called "new landscape" movement of the '70's where photographers like Robert Adams explored the interplay between nature and the modern, man-made world.
