A few shots from yesterday afternoon, Mar 11, 2013, shot from Lammaite Joe Yu's quadrocopter, the High Angle Rescue Team of the Fire Sevices Dept. during a practice drill atop Lamma Winds, abseiling to the ground.

The first photo below is currently attracting a more-than-usual number of Likes on Facebook's "Lamma Gung" - Wanna be my Friend? - and it's also my new PC wallpaper. It's too large to display here in full size, so if you'd like it, PM me.

From HK master photographer Will Cho
(featured in local magazines and "Followed by 3,977 people" on Facebook alone. I'm blushing with envy with only 31 Followers so far.)

The photo below wasn't shot this week, but almost exactly one year ago, May 5, 2012, collecting 750+ Likes already.

There's even an amazing timelapse video of the same view, taken yesterday morning, May 21, 2013, around 5am:
http://youtu.be/a6AAZeNfKAQ

I saw one particular lightning strike hitting the middle power station chimney the other night, burning a vivid double strike pattern into my retina which took minutes to fade completely.

Plus some more of Will Cho's amazing recent Lamma photos:

From Mr DickStock:

"Subject: Low Hanging Fruit

Some public servant cut this low-hanging branch off short. It is PRECISELY at eye-level...a real 'eye-opener', waiting to happen... just north of the Lammarina, on the coastal path to Pak Kok.

Might be a 'heads-up' for Lamma folks heading that way."

The Google Man has been spotted again on Lamma this morning, doing a Street View for our major paths!
It might take a while to go up on Google Earth, but at least we've finally been acknowledged.

These signs are on the main path along Hung Shing Yeh beach.

Besides the very unusual spellings of Yung Shue Wan and So Kwu Wan, does anybody know where Dayan Cafe and Wachifield Resort are? Never heard of them...

Former Lamma ambulance, discontinued last century after a staff was killed when the ambulance overturned up in Po Wah Yuen, I believe. Photo by "Local Hongkongman", via Pete Spurrier.

From Prime Bar & Grill:

"Google Street View comes to Lamma. See who you can recognize! Look - I found Jess hiding in the dark on Google Street View, its kind of eerie!

https://www.google.com/maps/@22.225778,114.111693,3a,15y,276.91h,84.51t/data=!3m5!1e1!3m3!1skknmzjsAY30K4yARIE3ntw!2e0!3e5"




This is an amazing exploration of a full-surround views of much of Lamma, all over YSW, but also including half-way up to Mt. Stenhouse! Play with it, move around in virtual reality-like, rotate 360 degrees, zoom in/out, go anywhere the Google Guy went all over Lamma. It's like a virtual reality snapshot of Lamma in Nov 2013. Some places have changed already, like Lamma Grill still open back then in Tai Yuen on the Family Trail, not a trace of it left now.

We've got a photo of the Google Guy walking along YSW Main Street last Nov, by Sean Creamer, a Lamma Photo of the Week:
