Nice shot - very atmospheric reminder of damp nights walking home on Lamma.

Vicky's latest sunset shot is beautiful. And the black&white photos are worthy of an Ansel Adams folio. Well done !!

L-G, this thread is worth its weight in Lamma-publicity gold.

You're right, Chuck!
But if more people would be submitting photos for the "Photo of the Day" spot oin the home page, this Lamma photo collection would become even better.

bbdog, your night shot was on the home page yesterday! More, more!

As we're in the middle of the rainy season, rain shots are most welcome!
This one was shot from The Water Front Rest. yesterday morning, during an absolutely amazing, high-volume, tropical downpour. As their terrace is just covered by an awning and plastic sheets on 3 sides, the rain noise was most impressive.

Picturesque & quaint, with a colourful composition.

But do you have a similar one with a little bit more water, please?

A photo from the amazingly clear days during and after the recent Golden Week.

The Moiré effects in the tower come from an intentional low-quality "nearest neighbour" downsizing of the photo and a little sharpening of the edges afterwards.

I've just put the Lamma Photos of the Day so far into a photo gallery and will update it at least monthly.
This could become the definitive collection of Lamma photos someday, if we get more contributors to showcase their best shots on the home page every day!

<center>But we need MORE PHOTOS FROM MORE PEOPLE!</center>

Click below for the Lamma Photo of the Day gallery!

Here's my effort du jour. I didn't have a tripod so hand held it which means the composition isn't what I wanted. I still quite like the result though.....

No tripod for this shot? Wow, you've got a very steady hand?

Years of experience?

I could only afford a tripod myself recently, but what a difference it makes for my formerly mostly crap night shots!

Very unusal shot! Accepted as a Photo of the Day!

I got quite a number of photos after my call for Photos of the Day in yesterday's Lamma-zine on the home page. So your moody shot above will go into the queue. Just a few days...

Maybe I should also forward it to HEC, with a title of "RED POISON CLOUD OVER HK ELECTRIC POWER STATION !!!"
It would be most Interesting what kind of feedback I would get from them...

One day when we're heading to the ferry, my wife said that the dried leaves looks like bats, to me, it's kinka "Sleepy Hollow", do you know where it is? I didn't have my monster camera with me, so I just took this pic with my cell phone, looks spooky huh?

I have to confess that the weather this week is a real turn-off to take pictures. These are the pics i took in the recent 2 weeks. (except the first pic)

Enjoy!

Wow, I've benn flooded with submissions for Photo of the Day!

I've got more responses to this photo submission appeal than to any other Lamma-zine story this year so far!
I've got enough photos for a number of days, but keep them coming! Great ones can even jump the queue for early publication, IF there'd be a queue!

By the way, more people photos, please! And even pet photos are welcome, if they're funny and/or outstanding in some way. Good example is today's Photo of the Day on the home page, submitted by e from LAWC. But no flooding me with all your pet pohotos, please. The photos have to be outstanding, Lamma-related and special in a way obvious to the viewers who usually will not know the pet.

Lightning inside a cloud at night, just above the windturbine, submitted by Andy Griff, already made into a "Photo of the Day" on the home page:

"Taken at 05:22am after watching football in Diesel's, hence the title 'England 2, Sweden 0'"

A really amazing photo I received just today from French Igor:

I wonder what this strike actually hit? The mountain of coal is in about that position. If it ever ignited, we'd all notice pretty quickly...

I think you'll find the coal mountain is further to the left. In any case, the chimneys would be more likely to be hit. That looks as though it is someway out to sea.

My flat lights are up near top left and I would have heard any strike on the power station - it is one hell of a noise - and it hasn't happened for a long time. Of course, that photo could be an old one.

It's been thousand that I told myself to bring my tripod to work when I was heading back home from ferry every evening. I finally did last night an I took a few shots until I was stopped by a local.
