Comments

Here are a couple of photos I happened to take from a near idetical location, in May of this year.

Tates Cairn towards Sai Kung
Tate's Cairn

Thank you Craig for your photos of this fabulous view,  it's good to see it in colour. Thanks also for all the interesting info about the tunnels on One Rise More.

Regards, Pauline.

I suspect that Pauline's photo is looking more or less due North from Tate's Cairn, down to what is now Shatin new town. I'm fairly certain we're not looking at Pak Sha Wan / Hebe Haven, as shown in Craig's (albeit fine) shots.

Rob, I think you're right. Thanks for the correction,

Regards, David
