Sheung Wan in the Shadows and the Golden Light

Man Mo Temple, Sheung Wan, during Chinese New Years.

I shot this on the walk back to my rented apartment from Victoria Peak, Hong Kong 香港. The golden light of afternoon graced the tips of the taller buildings in Sheung Wan 上環 with a lovely glow. Pictured here in the shadows is Man Mo Temple 文武廟, one of the very few temples I passed by in a week of exploring Hong Kong. I would have gone in to look around but it was surprisingly busy—and I was beat from the hike.
