Every hipster knows that Sunset Peak is draped in a gold cloak in autumn.  Located on Lantau Island, Sunset Peak stands 869 metres and is the third tallest peak in Hong Kong.  It is even a place of pilgrimage between November and December – as the sun’s rays reflect off the slope at sunrise and sunset, the seas of silvergrass appear golden, irresistibly reminiscent of the golden field at the end of the animated film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.  To create a sense of depth in your photos, make sure to include the stone chalets in the background.  There are 22 of them, now known as Lantua Mountain Camp. They were built in the 1920s and their building materials were transported manually from the foothill to the mountain, as a place for spiritual formation and holiday accommodation for British missionaries.
