The Beach with the Buffalo: Lantau, Hong Kong

On Lantau Island at the mouth of the Pearl River, the buffalo come to sleep. Twilight drifts over the neon lights, the gleaming spires and the synthetic shopping malls elsewhere in Hong Kong. But in this part, at least, twilight signals a change of pace.

And when that view looks like this, you can hardly blame them, can you?
