As the proverbial "they" say, "It is darkest before dawn". But since I hardly ever get up in earnest at that time of the day, I have no photos of those wee hours to share with you!
Alternatively, as those of you checked out my Photo Hunt entry last week will have realized, I love taking sunset photos. And longer term visitors to this blog also know that I often have my camera out at dusk -- that time of the day when the sky may not be beautifully orange but there still is enough light for the darkened world to show (or at least hint) at its visible charms. In addition, after getting my current camera of choice (the thus far truly trusty -- touch wood! -- Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2), I've become more inclined to take night shots.
Consequently, here's offering up both a dusk (or would it already be considered twilight?) view of Lantau's Lower Cheung Sha Beach and one of central Macau still decked out with lanterns one October evening (despite the Mid-Autumn Festival having taken place in September -- but never mind since the festive lanterns sure do beautify as well as light up what otherwise would have been a dark scene and night!). ;b
