Banyan Tree, Rocks, Tin Hau Temple and Victoria Harbour 天后廟、大石、大榕樹同維多利亞港

It was a fine sunny day at Sam Ka Village at the eastern entrance to Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour.    The entwining roots of this banyan tree growing on the rocky cliff were a joy to sketch!  This Tin Hau Temple (Tin Hau is the goddess of the sea and is widely worshipped in Hong Kong) is also a special one as part of the temple actually stands in the water.  The temple, the rocks, the Banyan tree and the winding waterfront trail together they formed an interesting composition.
