Description

Hong Kong is said to be a concrete jungle and yet it has a unique landforms and landscapes rarely found in other parts of the world. The Hong Kong National Geo-Park is one of such examples with special geological significance. The Hong Kong Geo-Park is made up of eight geo-areas with a total area of about 50 square kilometers. This series of three photographs, taken in December 2008, presents the magnificent panoramic view of the hexagonal volcanic columns found in the Geo-Park at the High Island Reservoir East Dam which is on the eastern part of New Territories. Here you can find interesting geographical phenomena like faults, folds, twisted rock columns and dyke intrusions all in one place.

The ramp on the right is the primary dam for the reservoir behind while the one on the left is the secondary dam to provide extra protection to the primary dam and serve to isolate the reservoir from attack of the rough sea.
