Back to Lantau Island. The 'Wisdom Path' is situated close to the Po Lin Monastery. It's a lovely walk that leads you to a sight you don't expect to see, that being thirty-eight individual timber columns with inscriptions arranged to correspond with the topography of the landscape. The figure-of-eight configuration symbolises infinity and the number 8 is a very lucky number in Hong Kong society. If my memory serves me well, I took this shot while the sun lay behind the most prominent column. This makes things look darker than they actually were.
