At the risk of stating the obvious: ripples on the water are a photographer's delight. So Sandi can easily be excused for choosing it as a Photo Hunt theme even though ripples had previously featured as a Photo Hunt under tnchick's tenure.
The last time around, I had gone for shots of calm waters in typhoon shelters -- and that's the case again this second time around! For my mark two version of a ripple-themed Photo Hunt entry though, I've gone away from Hong Kong Island deep into the New Territories, specifically the relocated fishing village of Sam Mun Tsai on the shore of Tolo Harbour.
More than two years ago now, a good friend and I had gone hiking in the area. Before heading to Tai Po for dinner, we decided to hang out and watch the sunset at a locale the two of us found scenic in daytime but were to discover could be really beautiful when the setting sun's rays illuminated the water and accentuated the lines of its ripples.
