A Time-Lapse Video Captures a Sea of Clouds Rolling Through Hong Kong

When you think about Hong Kong, you probably imagine a busy, packed metropolis, home to international business and high-end shopping. Though the city pulls in a large number of tourists, most of them don't come to spend time discovering the wonder of its landscape. Even the majority of local residents are unaware of their home's natural beauty.

Wandering Photography, a trio team of photographers, have devoted themselves to promoting this less-well-known side of Hong Kong through photos and time-lapse videos. Their most recent production is a time-lapse video showing a sea of clouds from six different locations in Hong Kong, including Tung Shan, Tai To Yan, Dong Yeung Shan, Victoria Peak, Lugard Road, and Tai Mo Shan:

The photographers have a Facebook page, where they share their works with the public. By presenting the beauty of the city, they hope that local Hong Kong people will treasure their own land:

彈丸之地的香港,四周都是石屎森林,到處人煙稠密,然而只要用心發掘,郊野美景近在咫尺。流浪攝誠意跟各位分享最地道的山野風光,香港不但有不遜於外國的日出風景,也有閃耀的星空銀河和洶湧澎湃的雲海。

The small city is surrounded with skyscrapers that look like cement forest. The population density is so high. But if you take the time to discover the city, the beautiful natural landscape is so near. Wandering Photography sincerely shares with you the local natural landscape [that is captured in our photos]. We can see a beautiful sunrise here, no less beauty than the sunrise in a foreign landscape. We also have starry night, silvery galaxy and surging sea of clouds.

More time-lapse videos can be found in Wandering Photography's YouTube channel.

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
