HuangShan – the Sea of Clouds
Personal note: I only got to spend an hour in Hong Kong's airport while my plane refueled for the long trip across the Pacific to San Francisco. But I was lucky in my seat assignment on the plane as I got an airborne view of the night time skyline of Hong Kong flying out on a nice clear evening. Spectacular skyline!!
The author of the above blog has a beautiful night time skyline photo in his collection that reminded me of that great experience.
Since he has expressed copyrights and it is a wordpress blog I am not sourcing photos here. The photo of HuangShan - the Sea of Clouds is spectacular.
Just click on the link above and it will take you to the author's wordpress blog which contains some very beautiful photography and narrative.

If you are here or planning to visit here beware of this kind of thing on the roads here...happens quite often, imo. Just beware of the oncoming traffic at all times...especially at night or on the weekends in general. There are a lot of drunks on the roads here. Be particularly alert to the oncoming southbound traffic when returning from the National Park at night towards the north to the resorts. I also suggest you gas up and eat so you can avoid stopping in the Ka'u area. Very rough around the edges. Eat at Volcano village or stop in Captain Cook. There is virtually little police protection in the Ka'u district between the park and the South Kona district. The roads are very curvy and dangerous without lighting and very little shoulders. Cell service is spotty also. You are pretty much on your own in an area often referred to as "The Wild West".
