Mid February of 2009, we arrived at Luen Yick San Tsuen pretty late in the day. A woman was at the dock waiting for her daughter to arrive. My brother in law talked her into taking us out to her home which was part of the fish farm in Tolo Harbour. These photos were taken from her boat using a Canon 30D and Sigma 18-200mm lens. When she dropped us back at the dock, her daughter was waiting for her.
But, we had a great sunset!
