Original title: Chung Hom Kok (舂坎角, Hong Kong), 1980

I made this image from what is now Stanley Ma Hang Park (赤柱馬坑公園), near the current location of Murray House (美利樓). The camera is facing southwestward, toward Chung Hom Kok (舂坎角).

Comment by Penhahk: i believe this is near Chung Hom Kok area, u took this picture from Stanley near Murray House (looked westwards). Nice houses on the hill is still existing. More hints is the pavilion (orange coloured) on right hand side, that is Kwan Yam Temple.
