Sunset Peak Startrail by Chap Him Wong, Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition entry.

29.7 x 42 cm print.

At 869 metres (2851 feet), Sunset Peak is Hong Kong's third-highest mountain and it is particularly beautiful in autumn. The stone cottages on its slopes were originally built by the British and other westerners for their summer vacations: now these old buildings have become wind shelters for campers. Above the peak covered with gold and silver grass, the tantalising sky reveals the Milky Way and stars beyond. Little wonder that Sunset Peak has become one of the most popular locations for hiking and photography in Hong Kong.
