    The Green Lion

    Cheung Chau's Bun Festival, which draws tens of thousands of local and overseas tourists every year, is staged to mark the Eighth day of the Fourth Moon. in the Chinese calendar (this is usually in early May). It coincides with the local celebration of Buddha's Birthday.

    The Cheung Chau Bun Festival began as a fun and exciting ritual for fishing communities to pray for safety from pirates. Today this religious origin has largely been forgotten, and the festival has mainly become a showcase of traditional Chinese culture.

    Nice colour there. I was thinking that it is a pity about the sky being so grey. But on reflection, I wonder if anything else might have been too bright and distracted from the fine texture.

    Thanks Geoff.

    The pic does not show the actual conditions that day. It had to be underexposed a fair bit to prevent the whites from blowing.

    It was one of those super super bright days when Sunny 16 was a Sunny 18.
